LONDON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY

? - ?

The University of North London (UNL) was a university in London, formed from the Polytechnic of North London (PNL) in 1992 when that institution was granted university status. PNL, in turn, had been formed by the amalgamation of the Northern Polytechnic and North-Western Polytechnic in 1971. In 1996, the university celebrated its centenary, dating from the year of the Northern Polytechnic's founding. UNL existed until 1 August 2002, when it merged with London Guildhall University to form London Metropolitan University. In October 2006, the University opened a new Science Centre as part of a 30m investment in its science department at the North campus on Holloway Road, with a 'Super Lab' one of Europe's most advanced science teaching facilities and 280 workstations equipped with digital audio-visual interactive equipment.
