Since 1977, when BYU converted two stately Victorian row-houses on Hyde Park’s northern edge into its new overseas campus, the London Centre has served as the university’s premier study abroad location in Europe. Four decades of BYU students have now called the London Centre home. Fall Semester 2021 we will resume study abroad programs in London and around the globe.
