Middlesex University (abbr. MU, MDX) is a university in north London, England. It is located in the historic county boundaries of Middlesex from which it takes its name. It is one of the new universities and is a member of Million+ working group. As is the case with many former polytechnics, Middlesex was formally organised as a teaching institution relatively recently (in 1973), yet can trace its history back to 19th century.
Since 2000, Middlesex University has been reducing the number of campuses dotted around London’s North Circular Road in an effort to cut costs by consolidating most of the university at the flagship campus in Hendon. Its new estate strategy which has already cost £150 million will eventually concentrate the university on three sites in north London.
