Exterior of Harbour Exchange

The University of Sunderland in London has acquired a whole floor of Harbour Exchange Square and is working with top designers to renovate the office space ready to welcome students later this year.

In the beating heart of Docklands and on the waterfront, Harbour Exchange offers some of the most flexible and best-connected office space in London today, moments from key travel connection destinations and neighbouring Canary Wharf.

Sir David Bell KCB DL, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Sunderland said: “The University of Sunderland in London is an integral, and highly successful, part of our institution. Therefore, I am delighted that we are now able to expand in London through the acquisition of an exciting new space which will be of benefit, both to students and staff.

“[The expansion to Harbour Exchange] demonstrates our commitment, as well as our ability, to invest in growing and strong parts of the University’s work.” - Sir David Bell

We welcomed over 4,412 students during the last 12 months, with more new people joining our community than in any previous year - 2,794 across four intakes since March 2020.

Four new programmes were successfully launched - one in August 2020 and three in October 2020.

Since opening in 2012, we’ve enrolled 15,334 students, surpassing its 15,000th in April this year.
