Our location
and facilities

Mulberry UTC is located in Bow in Tower Hamlets, on the site of the old Fire Station at 64 Parnell Road, London E3 2RU.

You can find us at the end of Roman Road Market and very close to Victoria Park and the Olympic Village. We are housed in a brand new building with state-of-the-art facilities that were completed in August 2017.

Students at Mulberry UTC benefit from working within our fantastic new building, a stimulating and creative learning environment with custom-designed, professional-standard facilities you would expect to find at cutting edge places of employment.

We have a 250-seat theatre modelled on the Dorfman at the National Theatre, studio theatre, TV and film studio with green screen, recording studio, radio production suite, animation studio, post-production and digital editing suites. In addition, there are dressing rooms, construction and costume workshops; specialist science labs; hospital and healthcare simulation rooms; and other digital technology suites.

The UTC is easily accessible by local buses and trains. Bow Road, Bethnal Green, Bow Church and Mile End stations are all a short walk away. The UTC is also close to Stratford and the Olympic Park.

Mulberry UTC encourages sustainable and active travel

Our aim Mulberry UTC encourages all students and staff to adopt sustainable and, wherever possible, active modes of transport to and from the UTC. We discourage travelling to the UTC by car. Active travel includes:

  • walking
  • cycling
  • scooting

Sustainable travel includes all the above and:

  • public transport such as bus, DLR, underground, train.

Active travel:

  • improves mental and physical health through physical activity;
  • increases concentration and alertness.

Sustainable travel:

  • establishes positive travel behaviour;
  • promotes independence and improves safety awareness;
  • reduces congestion, noise and pollution in the local community;
  • reduces the environmental impact of journeys to school.

The UTC provides safe and secure cycle and scooter storage on the UTC site.
