Construction works

Updates on construction works impacting UCL Halls will be published on this web page as and when they become available to the UCL Accommodation team.

London is a global, vibrant city and development is inevitable. 

The scarcity and spiralling cost of property in the capital makes it impossible for UCL to re-house those who may be temporarily affected by building works in the area.

For this reason, we are taking all steps to reduce the impact of all building works, but some noise and disruption to those living in UCL accommodation will at times, be inevitable.

Ann Stephenson House/Neil Sharp

No construction works reported.

Arthur Tattersall House

Camden Council are working along the length of Gower Street and Bloomsbury Street on lamp column installations as part of their ongoing West End Project works, resulting in temporary closure of some of the pavement on Gower Street. The pavement will be reinstated once the works have been completed.

Astor College

No construction works reported.

Beaumont Court (run by Unite Students)

No construction works reported.

Bernard Johnson House

Endsleigh Gardens

High Speed Two 

HS2 is the UK's new high speed rail network. Phase one of HS2 will link London (Euston) and Birmingham, and it is expected that major works will commence around London Euston in the upcoming months.

The main impact on UCL from the HS2 operations will likely be felt to the south of Euston Road as a result of increased demolition and construction activity.
UCL has secured an Assurance from HS2 to provide mitigation against the environmental and associated impacts of the HS2 programme, such as noise and increased traffic. UCL will be monitoring adherence to that Assurance.
UCL is working with HS2 on the preparation of a noise and vibration management plan which will help to ensure that noise impacts associated with HS2 works are controlled.
Project plan
The project will continue until 2026 (Phase 1), we have been notified of the following milestones for information. 

  • Construction of the new entrance to Euston Square underground station is likely to commence late 2021/2022. This will involve the permanent closure of Gordon St between Euston Road and the junction with Gower Place/Endsleigh Gardens and the excavation of a new ticket hall and pedestrian tunnel linking to the eastern platforms of Euston Sq station. These works are likely to last around four (or more) years.
Frances Gardner House

Schafer House

1 Triton Square 

British Land are redeveloping 1 Triton Square to provide modern work office space, new retail space and a gym. The development is near to Drummond Street, meaning Schafer House may be affected by the construction works.
Work will commence on 1 March 2018 and is expected to be completed in December 2020. The work will take place in line with Camden Council regulations between 8am and 6pm Monday-Friday, and 8am and 1pm Saturday. 
The work may also see an increase in traffic on Drummond Street.

Stephenson House 

Stephenson House, neighbouring with Schafer House, will undergo construction works until 2021. 
The works consists of a full demolition of the building down to the ground floor, retaining the basement, then creating a new structure for commercial residential and retail use. 
Starting from 17 December 2018, there will be a one-way system created along Drummond Street, from Hampstead Road, for the foreseeable future. 
We will be liaising directly with the contractors on a regular basis to ensure that we have up to date information and are aware of any major works that are likely to cause residents disruption.
Camden Council noise guidelines are 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. No noisy works should take place on Sundays and bank holidays, unless agreed with the Council. The contractor have assured us that they will be fully compliant with the local council’s rules and regulations.
