Where in Here East?


The Here East complex is buzzing with creative businesses, start-ups and lots of other innovative ventures. Our building was previously used as the international media hub for the London 2012 Olympics, which means we have superfast networks for data.

Staffordshire University London is located at Entrance D: the Fabric Factory at the south-west corner of the Broadcast Centre building. It’s just around the corner from the Here East shuttle bus stop.

We occupy a number of floors of this building, so just ask for us at reception and staff will direct you. We are clearly signposted from the first floor.
