The UCL East site lies wholly within the Olympic Park, to the south of the Aquatics Centre and the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
One of the attractions of the UCL East site is its excellent transport connections. The Park is served well by public transport, with a number of connections within walking distance. These provide connections to Underground, Overground, DLR, High Speed rail and future Crossrail services, with convenient onward links to major London terminals and a number of airports.
The closest stations to the Park are: Hackney Wick; Pudding Mill Lane; Stratford; and Stratford International. The UCL East site is located closest to the Stratford and Pudding Mill Lane stations. Bus services are also available from Westfield Avenue and the bus station adjacent to Stratford Station.
It is 7 minutes on the South Eastern Javelin service from St Pancras to Stratford International, and 18 minutes from Tottenham Court Road to Stratford on the Central Line. These transport links will further improve with the arrival of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail). It is also approximately a 40 minute cycle between the Bloomsbury campus and the Olympic Park campus.
The UCL East site will be
predominantly car free. However, accessible parking spaces will be provided on
site, including disabled parking bays and electric charging points, along with
coach and taxi bays. There will be both long stay and short stay cycle parking.
