The Craft Building

A refurbished residence only a 10-minute walk from the Campus. Make the most of your London life in this social student residence.


The Craft Building is located near to Aldgate East and Whitechapel Underground stations and is just a 10-minute walk from the Campus.

It is a two-minute walk from Brick Lane and close to Spitalfields Market, meaning you have shopping and entertainment options right on your doorstep. Aldgate East is on the Hammersmith and City, and the District lines. Whitechapel is also on both lines, as well as London overground rail service. Aldgate is a large bus terminal, meaning you can travel all over the city 24 hours a day.
