About UCL

UCL was founded in 1826 to open up higher education in England to those who had been excluded from it – becoming the first university in England to admit women students on equal terms with men in 1878. Based on its founding date and starting teaching in 1828, UCL claims to be the third-oldest university in England.

UCL is primarily based in the Bloomsbury area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London.

The closest tube stations to UCL’s Gower Street site are Euston Square (Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan and Circle lines), Warren Street (Northern and Victoria lines), Euston (Northern and Victoria lines) and Russell Square (Piccadilly line).

A list with selected hotels can be found here. Please keep in mind that the city is visited by many tourists during the whole year, which is why we encourage early booking.
