The Bartlett


The Bartlett Together Festival 2022

A festival to welcome our new and returning student and staff community for a series of interactive in-person sessions. We invite you to explore and discover The Bartlett.

This year The Bartlett Together Festival (26-29 September, 2022) invites new and returning students, as well as staff, to come together for the first year in-person for a series of inspiring, interactive sessions to celebrate the start of the academic year. 

Throughout the festival, The Bartlett community will take part in a series of stimulating discussions, and debates, hosted by world-leading academics from The Bartlett, UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment. Christoph Lindner, Dean of The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, will open the festival with a series of sessions welcoming new students followed by conversation and Q&A with special guests.  

Further sessions throughout the week include visual ‘show and tell’ breakfast sessions from Bartlett academics and staff, lunchtime talks and much more.
