How to get to UCL

The first step of your adventure in the UK will be to make your way to UCL... it's all part of the adventure! You have a few options depending on which airport you fly into, and how much you're willing to spend on your journey.

Unfortunately, UCL is unable to operate airport transfers. To help you, we’ve put together some information which details the options you have for finding your way here. Just select your arrival airport from the list below for further details.

London is well-served by transport links and UCL is located in the Bloomsbury district at the very centre of London. There are easy connections to UCL from London’s global hub airports at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted and you will find that London’s extensive public transport system is convenient and easy to use. However, if you don’t fancy public transport, we have also included details of taxis and independent airport transfer company Silver Shuttle. Silver Shuttle is an external company to UCL - it is your decision whether or not you wish to use this service, and you would need to liaise directly with them regarding your booking.

These directions are from the main airports to the main UCL site on Gower Street – if you're going to your accommodation or elsewhere, these directions will vary.
