The Bartlett


Our Schools, Institutes, Centres and Units

Individually, our departments lead their fields. In partnership, they develop new responses to pressing world issues. Together, they represent a world-leading, multidisciplinary faculty united by the radical spirit of UCL. With a wealth of resources, partners and history on our doorstep in London, we are able to learn about the built environment in ways that are impossible elsewhere. See the summary of all our departments below.
