Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales said the east of London would benefit from the establishment of "world-class academic facilities in Stratford".
"As well as presenting employment opportunities, a new campus will provide a significant boost to the local economy and provide a lasting legacy for the community," he added.
The announcement is one of a long line of developments currently in the pipeline for the east of the capital.
One Stratford Place presently offers ten storeys of London offices
