Every student receives a free copy of Essential Westminster when they start at the University of Westminster. Essential Westminster has everything you need to know about University life, the support services available to students and life in London.
The guide gives good information on how to settle in to student life, including opening a bank account, registering with a doctor, transport and personal safety. The University website has an online version of Essential Westminster which is updated with any changes to information - see the online version here.
