Visit the Jeremy Bentham auto-icon

Jeremy Bentham sits at the end of the South Cloisters on campus. He is usually woken up around 8am, and put to sleep at 6pm, Monday – Friday. Special out of hours viewings can be arranged.

The auto-icon of Jeremy Bentham will be taken off public display on April 10th and given a light clean and inspection by conservation staff at UCL during the morning. Between 12.30 – 4.30 we will then make the auto-icon available for members of the public to view (free of charge) in the Rock Room, UCL’s Geology Museum. Staff will be present during the public opening hours to answer any questions visitors may have.

So if you are free during the afternoon of April 10th and would like to ‘meet’ Jeremy Bentham please do come visit
