Living in London

Travel

Being located at the heart of central London, UCL is within easy reach of all main line stations and the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras for access to Europe. With London's airports equally easy to access, UCL is truly London's Global University.

Travel

London's public transport system is the easiest way to get around, with underground ('Tube'), train and bus networks.

As a student, you are eligible for 30% off all adult travelcards and bus passes valid for a week or more.

Cycling and walking are cheap and healthy. Use London's network of cycle routes plus the Cycle Hire scheme.

London has excellent transport links to the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond. UCL is within walking distance of several major transport hubs, including the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras International, and King's Cross and Euston stations.
