    Student Life

    When visiting Cat Hill you feel a real buzz. The campus is very much hands-on and students can be observed pinning together their latest designs in the fashion studios, performing, filming or directing, designing jewellery, printing textiles or illustrating architectural designs.

    Students can also be found hanging around having a coffee and a chat in the cafes and on the grass.

    The University's new Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) is based here. Offering a wealth of exciting archive material, it houses one of the most important collections of decorative design from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Entrance is free. From Cat Hill it is only a short journey to central London, one of the world's most famous cities for the creative industries. Photographs of MoDA can be viewed in the Cat Hill Photo gallery

    Middlesex University student performances can be seen at The Chicken Shed Theatre across the road from Cat Hill reception.
