White City Campus

Where great ideas grow


At the heart of the White City Innovation District, the White City Campus is where great ideas grow. Academics here are publishing ground breaking research and turning their ideas into new ventures. Businesses, large and small, are leading the world in areas such as quantum engineering, clean energy and machine learning. With close links to Hammersmith Hospital, we are running clinical trials into vital topics such as dementia, cancer, infectious diseases and therapeutics.

Our community of innovators has grown out of Imperial College London in partnership with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. In 2017, the council launched an industrial strategy called Economic Growth for Everyone. The result was a collective effort between business, higher education and local government that attracted billions of pounds of investment and hundreds of companies to the area. Today, students and researchers at Imperial benefit from our close links to public and private sector partners, and our research makes a meaningful difference.

While the ideas generated here have a global impact, we are firmly rooted in White City. We run programmes for local school children, inspiring the next generation of scientists and innovators. And our campus is a place where the local community is welcome. No matter their age, everyone can learn, be inspired and invent in White City.
