Disruption to student accommodation

Disruption to student accommodation, 2016-2018

Transforming UCL is the largest capital programme in UCL's history, and will create sustainable spaces that meet our world-class aspirations and commitment to excellence and innovation.  As you'll be aware, London is a global city and the property market is very expensive. In order to provide world class facilities for our students, the best and most sustainable use of our resources is to extend and upgrade existing buildings where possible. 

This approach inevitably leads to some disruption. The scarcity and spiralling cost of property in the capital also makes it impossible for UCL to re-house those temporarily affected by building works. For this reason, we are taking all steps to reduce the impact of these development works, but some noise and disruption to those living in student accommodation is inevitable.

We hope that you will bear with us in the coming months. Should you require more information, please contact the UCL Student Accommodation team on +44 (0)20 7679 6322 or at residences@ucl.ac.uk
