City Uni London

One of the many universities which have kept us busy with dissertation printing & binding over the last couple of months is City University London. The work was mostly printing and wiro binding although we did also supply some hard binding for their MBA students and soft binding for PhD and MSc students during the period under scrutiny. Often City University students required same day turnaround although that is not a problem; we simply need the PDF file(s) and the student’s order by 10.30am in order to have the bound thesis ready for them by 3.30pm the same day (week days only).

As the name suggests, City University is based around the City area of London and is only minutes from the Square Mile itself. The main entrance is in Northampton Square in London EC1, with several buildings being in that area plus three in WC1 and one other a little further East in E1. All of these are, of course, within a convenient stone’s throw of us here at The Document Centre, ten minutes’ walk from London Bridge, just across the River Thames.

City University began life as The Inns of Court School of Law back in 1852, including in 1876 a student named ‘Herbert Henry Asquith’ who would later go on to become the British Prime Minister in 1908, remaining so until 1916. Other notable figures that also passed through what would later become City University’s ‘The City Law School’ include former British Prime Ministers Clement Attlee, Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher as well as none other than Mohandas (‘Mahatma’) Gandhi. A more complete history of the university is available here.

Today the university has 5 main schools and departments:

  • The Cass Business School;
  • The School of Arts & Social Sciences;
  • The School of Health Sciences;
  • The School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering;
  • The City Law School.

The university prides itself on academic excellence and focuses on business and the professions. Regularly performing well in university league tables, the university has a reputation for world-leading research, has strong links to the City of London, has a truly global outlook and boasts The Lord Mayor of London as its Chancellor. The university is proud to be ‘advancing knowledge and bringing value to society‘; indeed the motto on its crest reads ‘To serve mankind‘. More information can be found at
