Students have studied at St Luke’s for over 150 years and although much has changed over the years, the campus has retained a vibrant, collegiate atmosphere in which everyone soon gets to know each other. As you walk through the arches of the traditional North Cloisters you will see the lawns of the quadrangle surrounded by modern teaching buildings.
Laboratories at St Luke’s include: Exercise physiology laboratories, Blood analysis laboratory, DEXAlaboratory, Body composition laboratory, Vascular physiology laboratory, MRI simulation laboratory, Muscle strength laboratory, Magnetic resonance centre, Magnetic Stimulation Unit, Biomechanics laboratories, Motion analysis laboratories, and Gait analysis laboratory.
Academic facilities include a library, which has recently undergone a £1 million refurbishment, IT facilities and support, and modern seminar rooms and lecture theatres. The St Luke’s Campus has excellent facilities for sport including a sports hall, an air-conditioned health and fitness studio and an indoor heated swimming pool.
The Students’ Guild organises many events and activities on campus but students at St Luke’s also take full advantage of all the academic, social and sporting facilities at the Streatham Campus which is about a 25-minute walk or a short bus ride away and the buses run very frequently between the campuses.
