About UCL


Institutional plans and strategies

UCL's future plans are guided by UCL 2034, the university's 20-year strategy. We are also currently consulting with our UCL community on a 5-year Strategic Plan 2022-27.

Key UCL strategies

UCL East

UCL is building a new campus at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to form part of a wider education and cultural quarter following the government's announcement of £152m in support of the project. UCL East is envisaged as a radical new model of how a university campus can be embedded in the local community and with businesses, as well as providing world-leading research, education, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Transforming UCL

A range of projects are taking place across the campus as part of a 'Masterplan' vision to transform UCL into a more vibrant student-focused environment, to support teaching and learning and improve the student experience. The Masterplan was released in 2011 with a broad vision for the future of UCL. A suite of projects to enhance the student and staff experience began in Summer 2012 to help to improve student learning spaces with an extended programme of works that followed. There are now a range of ‘hubs’ across the campus, including the Cruciform Hub, the Royal Free Hub within the Royal Free Hospital, and the Whittington Hub in the Highgate Wing.

Campaign for UCL

Campaign at UCL…
It’s All Academic, the Campaign for UCL, raised nearly £624 million, and inspired over 263,000 volunteering hours to help UCL, our students and our alumni community. Alumni, donors and volunteers joined staff and partners in ensuring the Campaign, which ran from September 2016 to July 2020, achieved its targets a year ahead of schedule. In service of our founding ambition to make the world a better place for us all, It's All Academic has demonstrated the power of UCL's brilliant community.
