About University College London

Address and Location

University College London (UCL) is spread across a number of buildings in Bloomsbury, Central London's 'University District'. The main campus is situated on Gower Street; other facilities and academic departments are scattered across London. The university's School of Energy and Resources is based at a partner institution in Adelaide, Australia.
 

Background and History

UCL is the oldest member of the University of London, founded in 1826 as a secular institution. The first university in the country to allow entrance to women on the same terms as men, in the twentieth century UCL merged with other London schools, growing in size and reputation. In 1994 the institution founded the University College London Hospitals NHS Trust, increasing the university's standing as a leading medical school.

Location and Accessibility

By Rail: Closest to the main campus are Euston Square, Goodge Street and Russell Square Tube stations. National and international rail services are available from nearby Euston and King's Cross-St. Pancras stations.

By Road: Driving to Bloomsbury is not advised; parking is difficult and the congestion charge applies in the area around the university. The nearest road for access is the A501 (Euston Road).

Accessibility: Most university facilities are wheelchair-accessible and accommodation is provided for students with disabilities.

University Accommodation

Fees for campus accommodation are not cheap unless students are willing to share a bedroom. That said, the central location of the university's halls goes some way to justify the cost. Places in intercollegiate halls are also available but can prove even more expensive.

Most students move away from Bloomsbury after their first year. Rents across the rest of London vary greatly.

What's on in the Area

Opportunities for entertainment are only limited by a student's budget. Bloomsbury provides a host of theatres, bars, restaurants and some of the best museums in London.
