University of Westminster Facts

  • The University of Westminster is a London-based public institution
  • The university dates back to 1838, when the English engineer and aeronautics expert Sir George Cayley, founded the Polytechnic Institution at Regent Street. It was the first polytechnic in the UK and became the University of Westminster in 1992.
  • In 1841 it opened the first public photographic portrait studio in Europe and hosted the first UK public moving picture display, organised by the Lumiere brothers, in 1896. More recently, it became the first UK partner university for UN Habitat, the agency dealing with human settlement and development.
  • It is arranged across four campuses, three in central London (Cavendish, Marylebone and Regent Street) and one (Harrow) in north-west London, and comprises five faculties: the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Westminster Business School, Westminster Law School, and Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design.
  • It also has its own gallery spaces for the display of contemporary art and architecture, where exhibitions, events and public talks regularly take place.
