The corner of Seven Sisters and Hornsey Road has a bike shop, a Chinese supermarket, and a pub that survived a Zeppelin attack.
It doesn't have a university. It never had a university. It is unlikely ever to have a university.
|The 'American University in London'|
It does have a building with a plaque. The plaque, just about visible in the photograph above, says 'American University in London'.
AUL was never accredited anywhere, and could no more confer degrees than I can (though if anyone's interested in a Hornsey Road MA my fees are reasonable and attendance requirements not onerous).
Its website is still up. It shows good-looking young people smiling and skates over AUL's premises being a few rooms over a bookies.
|Note the crest with House of Commons-y portcullis|
It recruited up to the 2011/12 academic year even though AUL was fined in 2006 for 'misleading prospective students by deceptively representing itself as a university in spite of lacking proper accreditation' and I can find no evidence that they became accredited after.
The plaque's still there too.
