Brunel University London is a public research university in the Uxbridge part of West London, England. It was started in 1966 and is named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In June 1966, Brunel College of Advanced Technology was given a royal charter and became Brunel University. The university is often described as a British plate glass university.

Brunel is sorted into three colleges, a form they accepted in August 2014, which also changed the name to Brunel University London. Brunel has over 16,150 students and 2,500 staff. They also had a total income of £237 million in 2019–20. 30% of this income came from grants and research contracts.[3] Brunel has three constituent (part of a whole) Academic colleges: the College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences; the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences; and the Colleges of Health, Medical and Life services. Brunel is part of the Association of Commonwealth universities, the European University Association, and Universities UK.
