Middlesex University is a public university in Hendon, north west London, England. It is located within the historic county boundaries of Middlesex from which it takes its name. It is one of the post-1992 universities and is a member of the Million+ working group. As is the case with many former polytechnics, Middlesex can trace its history back to the 19th century, yet was not formally organised as a teaching institution until 1973.5
Since 2000, the university has been reducing the number of campuses dotted around London's North Circular Road in an effort to cut costs and provide a better student experience by consolidating most of the university at the flagship campus in Hendon. As of the 2013 academic year, its estate strategy which has cost £150 million has concentrated the university on one site in north London.
In 2012, the university re-structured its academic schools to align them more closely with the needs of industry. Courses at Middlesex are now delivered by the schools of Business, Law, Art and Design, Health and Education, Media and Performing Arts and Science and Technology, alongside the university Institute for Work Based Learning.
Starting late 2016 the university amalgamated faculties e.g. Media & Performing Arts and Art & Design, this restructure has started to lead to job losses amongst support staff, although no public announcements have been made the back door approach of restructuring roles with less positions and then asking staff to apply for fewer jobs is being implemented. The impact on student satisfaction and ability to offer them continued support is as yet unknown.
