Tours and visits - explore UCL

UCL’s campus sits in the heart of London and is home to more than 40,000 students and 15,000 staff. Whether you are a prospective student or visiting London, why don’t you explore our campus and learn more about UCL’s rich and radical history.

UCL's established home in Bloomsbury, central London, was founded nearly 200 years ago. In addition, UCL is now also present in east London, with the opening in 2022, of our pioneering UCL East campus at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford.
