Their vision is "To achieve recognition, both nationally and internationally, as a successful and inclusive regional university, proud of our diversity, committed to new modes of learning which focus on students and enhance their employability, and renowned for our contribution to social, cultural and economic development, especially through our research and scholarship."
The university is located on three main campuses, all within East London. These are:
- the Stratford Campus, at Stratford;
- the Docklands Campus, in London's redeveloped Docklands area; and
- the Barking Campus, at Barking.
Major new campus buildings have been created in the period 1999-2006, particularly in the Docklands area. By the end of 2006, the university will consolidate all of the academic Schools together on two campuses, at Docklands and Stratford. Whilst the university will close its campus at Barking, it will be setting up a new lifelong learning facility in Barking town centre.
