London Metropolitan University has a rich history with strong educational roots dating back to 1848.
The University as it is today was created in 2002 with the merging of London Guildhall University and the University of North London, the first merger between two universities in the UK. Its roots however, lie firmly in the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men, in 1848.
In 1848 the then Bishop of London called upon the clergy to set up evening classes to improve the ‘moral, intellectual and spiritual condition of young men in the metropolis’. The Metropolitan Evening Classes for Young Men was thus born and later became the City of London College and then the City of London Polytechnic. In 1992 it was awarded university status and adopted the name London Guildhall University.
