Love London

Fall 2018 Students – Sign up now! See below for details

With five airports and thirteen (inter)national rail stations, London is a hub to Europe – and the world. Many of our students make the most of their time at Syracuse London with ‘mini-breaks’ to Prague, Oslo, and Marrakech. What sometimes goes under-explored is, in fact, the amazing diversity of London itself. The metro’s thirty-two boroughs – plus the City of London itself – all have their own vibe and rich array of cafes, shopping, sport, art, and night life to offer.

Love LondonĀ is our programming launch, giving students the opportunity to dive into their new city. Over the course of their first weeks studying abroad, Love London takes students on a journey: They first visit London as a tourist through events like the iconic double-decker red bus sightseeing trips and the London Eye, then delve deeper into the city and learn more about its eccentricities, neighbourhoods, and proximity to…well, just about everything!

Students may select from a wide range of free activities. Sign-ups for the Fall 2018 Love London period are now open, and incoming students should indicate their activity preferences via the form below as soon as possible. The calendar of events is shown below; more detail about each of the options available can be found here.
