Travel Information

London, by virtue of being a global Alpha++ city, is easily reachable from almost all parts of the world. Middlesex University's Hendon campus is located in the borough of Barnet in northwest London, and easily reachable by public transport and car.

Getting to Hendon

A PDF campus map with tips on getting to the campus and on-campus directions can be found here.

By train

The campus is about fifteen minutes' walk from Hendon railway station, which has a direct connection to central London (St Pancras, Farringdon, City Thameslink, Blackfriars, and London Bridge).

By tube

The campus is about ten minutes' walk from Hendon Central tube station, which is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line (make sure to pick the right one, or change at Euston or Camden Town stations).

Travel into London

By plane

The four main airports in and around London are Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN).

From Heathrow

Heathrow is well connected to London by train and tube.

If you take the train from Heathrow (either the Heathrow Express or the cheaper stopping service), you are likely to end up at Paddington Station; to get from there to the Middlesex University campus, the easiest way is to take the westbound Circle or Hammersmith and City lines, get out at Euston Square and cross the road to Warren Street station to take a Northern Line train for Edgware (and get out at Hendon Central).

If you take the tube (Piccadilly Line) from Heathrow, you can change for the Northern Line at Leicester Square.

From Gatwick

Gatwick has its own train station, with express and stopping trains to London Victoria, and stopping services to London Bridge.

To go directly to the Middlesex University campus, you can take a First Capital Connect service for Bedford, and change at Blackfriars station for a service to Hendon railway station.

From Luton

There is a direct rail connection from Luton Airport Parkway rail station to London, which also passes through Hendon railway station. However, trains do not always call at Hendon, so you might have to change trains (West Hampstead seems to be the prefered station to do this).

From Stansted

From Stansted, there is a train connection with London Liverpool Street station. For the Middlesex University campus, get off at Tottenham Hale or Seven Sisters, take the southbound Victoria Line and change at Euston for the Northern Line.

Another option is to take the National Express A6 bus, which calls at Golders Green tube station, just two stops from Hendon Central on the Northern Line.

By train

International arrivals by train will be most likely at St Pancras train station, which has a direct connection to Hendon railway station.

By car

The Middlesex University campus is very close to the M1 motorway: driving into London, get off at junction 2, take the A1 in the direction of Central London, and then turn right onto Parson Street (B552) after about 2km. After about 1km, turn right onto Church Road (A504); the campus will be on your right.

However, be aware that parking space is extremely limited on campus. If you are planning to come by car, please contact me in advance and I will see if I can arrange for something.
