The UCL East site lies wholly within the Olympic Park, to the south of the Aquatics Centre and the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
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.
Travel time between UCL East and Bloomsbury campuses will range between seven minutes (from St Pancras to Stratford International using high speed rail services) and 18 minutes (from Tottenham Court Road to Stratford using London Underground). In addition, Crossrail will serve Stratford from 2018.
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.
