Academic Staff Common Room



The ASCR at UCL has existed for many years as an intellectual hub of the university. It is the place where staff can meet and mingle, creating conversations and collaborations that would never happen without it.

Situated in the Housman Room, off the North Cloisters, Wilkins Building, it is a membership organisation, maintained and financed by the subscriptions of its members and managed by a committee elected annually from the membership.

On this site you will find information about the ASCR and the facilities it offers to members, eligibility and how to join, and news and events, past and future.

 Housman Room closure

 By 5.30pm on Friday 20th March most UCL buildings will be closed. This includes the Housman Room which will be closed until further notice.
