History

In 1962, around 60.75 hectares of former agricultural land was acquired as the site for the new Brunel University when the College of Advanced Technology in Acton, established in 1957, was upgraded and expanded. It was named after Isambard Brunel whose Great Western Railway passed through Acton.
