A state of the art Jewish student centre in central London with wi-fi zones, modern cafe, study areas and meeting facilities has opened to replace 37-year-old Hillel House in Endsleigh Street.

The new UJS-Hillel centre occupies 4,000 square feet in a nearby area on the corner of Euston Road and Upper Woburn Place and is being promoted as a "must to go" place by the student organisation.

"The opening of the new London student centre is great news for the whole Jewish student community and is part of UJS-Hillel’s commitment to meeting the needs of 21st century students," said Daniel Marcus, chief executive of UJS-Hillel. "The Jewish Society will have a unique and cutting edge space to creatively provide social, cultural, educational and political programmes for all London based Jewish students."
