FAQs

How will the local community benefit from the campus?

The campus will be an integral part of the White City community, making a positive impact in local education, enterprise, employment and healthcare.  We’re creating an open and inviting place, which encourages schools, families, community organisations and people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in science and technology.

What research will take place at the White City Campus?

Research at the campus will support the college’s four strategic priorities: discovery and the natural world; engineering novel solutions; health and wellbeing; and leading the data revolution.  Just some of the work carried out there will include the development of new medical technologies to help detect diseases like cancer and research into low emission sources of energy.

When will the new campus open?

Postgraduate accommodation at GradPad’s Wood Lane Studios and the Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB), which provides space for technology and research businesses, are open on the part of the campus north of the Westway (A40).  Construction is underway for the Molecular Sciences Research Hub, the Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub and a residential tower.  We’re shaping the vision for the southern part of the campus and will be consulting the public on draft proposals.

Who will work at the new campus?

Imperial is inviting partners from around the world in business and academia, including fellow institutions, major corporations, start-up companies and venture funders, to join us at the White City Campus and work alongside our world-leading researchers.  Partnerships like this help us to translate our ideas and research into practical applications.
