Birkbeck College is located at the heart of Bloomsbury, a historical and fashionable area in the centre of London where numerous cultural, educational and health institutions are located. The British Museum is next to Birkbeck buildings, and Oxford Street is within walking distance. It is accessible by several underground lines, with a direct line to Heathrow airport. There are abundant hotels and restaurants in the neighbourhood.
