London's only zoological museum

UCL’s Grant Museum of Zoology is London’s only remaining university zoological museum, housing around 68,000 specimens. In 2015, the museum used innovative 3D printing technology to replace the lost leg of its quagga skeleton, as part of the Bone Idols project. The quagga – a half-stripped zebra – became extinct in 1883.

Taking on global challenges

The philosophy of global citizenship extends our responsibilities to an ever more closely connected world. Our Global Citizenship programme is open to all undergraduates. By taking on global challenges, like coming up with sustainable improvements to water infrastructure, or a way to negotiate between different groups in one city, students gain skills and prepare for careers as global citizens.

Bloomsbury Theatre: comedy, dance and drama

The Bloomsbury Theatre opened in 1968 as UCL’s purpose-built auditorium. Since then, it has hosted professional comedy, dance and drama performances alongside UCL student productions. With the theatre due to reopen in 2018 following renovation, current students are making use of the Bloomsbury Studio – a new, flexible performance and media space.
