Our Hawkshead Campus is near Potters Bar – which makes it within easy reach of central London by train – yet the campus is within in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. The 600 acre campus boasts a new restaurant, tennis courts, a student bar and a state-of-the-art library. Most students studying here choose to live here – although it’s also perfect for Camden-based students who’d prefer to get away from the hustle and bustle of London.
