The Bartlett


Study at The Bartlett

We’re the Bartlett, UCL’s faculty of the built environment. We’re here to build a better future.

Design better buildings? Plan better cities? Build sustainable communities? Help meet the challenge of climate change? Whatever your ambitions for the built environment, The Bartlett could be a big step towards them.

Established in 1841, The Bartlett is one of the oldest faculties of its kind. It’s also one of the most radical, being a pioneer in combining planning and architecture in its study. Today its 3,000 students and 250 staff work across 12 schools – these schools cover disciplines including construction and project management, energy and sustainability, public purpose and prosperity. In the 2018 QS rankings, The Bartlett was rated the top institution in Europe for architecture and built environment studies, and second in the world.
