Cleaning & Support Services
Landscaping and Grounds Maintenance
Facilities Services is also responsible for maintaining the grounds,
trees and external areas of the University Campus. Seasonal planting
is carried out to the flower beds and an annual tree survey is
undertaken to ensure that the trees are kept in an attractive,
healthy and safe condition. The trees include specimens such as
fig (Ficus Carica), gingko biloba and Indian bean tree (Catalpa
bignonioides), all of which are located in the Front Quadrangle.
The gingkos are now treated annually to prevent the pungent aroma
that emanates from the fruit of this particular tree.
There is a Japanese theme in the Roof Terrace Garden which features
a tree peonie donated by the International Management Network,
Asia alongside the distinctive Japan Monument and a number of young
Japanese acers (acer palmatum).
In support of UCL's environmental aims and policies, leaves
and grass are collected for composting.
Can I bring a marquee or gazebo on site?
Marquees can be placed in the following locations with the prior
agreement of Facilities Services.
To avoid damage to underground services and to protect the condition
of the grass, tent pegs or similar spikes should not be used but
weights may be used to secure the structure. Boards must be placed
on the Roof Terrace Grass area to protect the surface. To ensure
access for emergency vehicles is maintained at all times, you may
need to discuss your plans with the UCL Fire Safety Manager.
Vehicles may not be parked on or driven across any of the grassed
