The University, which has recorded a 40% increase in student numbers over the past three years, commissioned Fraser Brown MacKenna Architects to design the landmark development on a breathtaking waterside site at the heart of the developing Thames Gateway and a major conference facility.

The scheme, which overlooks London City Airport across the water, comprises 800 flats and self contained studios within five seven storey blocks perpendicular to the dock. A series of informal collegiate courtyard gardens line the dock edge. A café and a shop complete the development which is part of a £110 million campus expansion programme at the University of East London.
