Centre > The London Centre

"AHA was so quintessentially British, it was a great immersion into British culture to be able to study there. The location is PHENOMENAL, a quick walk, bus ride or even quicker tube journey anywhere in the city center."

Fall Semester student, 2011

Welcome to the AHA London Centre
The London Centre is located in the Bloomsbury/Holborn area at 6 Great James Street, a beautiful (and listed) Georgian town house. We are very proud of our building and hope you will love its historical value and architectural quirkiness when you come to visit!


Mary and Maggie's office

Faculty Lounge


The ground floor of the Centre is dedicated to administration and offers students easy access to administrative and academic support.

We have an open-doors policy and students can stop by at any time if they have any questions or need help.

A photocopier and scanner can be made available to students for academic purposes only.

Using their digi-code, students can go in and out of the Centre as they please during operating hours.

The Faculty now has its own quiet room nestled in the basement of the building. There, teachers can relax and prepare their lesson plans and consult our textbook and video library.

The premises are also equipped with a small staff kitchen, one Gents' and two Ladies' lavatories.


The London Centre welcomes two overlapping AHA programmes during term time, and each one has its own personalised classroom, with large windows and American-style tables. Rooms are equipped with textbooks, relevant maps and posters, a TV and Video/ DVD players.

The Centre also has other classrooms of various sizes, ideal for classes or teacher-student private conferences.

Student Library
Located on the first floor of the rear annexe of the Centre, the Student Library is a quiet place to read or research for an essay. Books are labelled and divided into relevant categories: Art, Humanities, Literature, London History, Social Sciences, Travel, and Theatre.

Computer Room

The Computer Room is equipped with 5 desktops linked to our wireless internet network and a laser printer. There is wireless internet access all around the premises which is ideal for personal laptop use.


The Centre is very close to four tube stations, many bus routes and within walking distance of the British Museum and Covent Garden. Each student receives an Oyster Travelcard (valid on tube, train and bus) to go everywhere!
