Religious Facilities at UCL
UCL is a secular institution and, while it recognises the
rights of individuals to hold their own religious beliefs, it does not
provide facilities for religious worship.
UCL does have a contemplation room for personal meditation open to all. This room is situated in Hut 34, on the path leading from the Bernard Katz Building at the South Junction towards the Henry Morley Building. Its opening hours are 8.30am to 6pm. Users are required to respect the code of practice for using the room, which are displayed. Contemplation Room map.
