The Bartlett


Our schools and centres

The Bartlett’s schools and sections span almost every aspect of built environment study, and every one of them conducts research that’s independent, influential and internationally respected.

In the UK’s latest Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF2014), Bartlett research staff achieved the greatest proportion of 4* (ie. world-leading) ratings overall of any faculty in the built environment field.

Having started life in 1841 as the UK’s first school of architecture, The Bartlett added the School of Planning in 1914, and its other schools and centres in the last 50 years to become the UK’s largest and leading faculty of the built environment.

As one of 10 faculties within UCL, we are part of a unique community of extraordinary and diverse research talents, offering unrivalled potential for cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Vice-Provost of Research David Price believes that UCL's ‘collective wisdom is greater than the sum of its expertise’, and has challenged UCL researchers to tackle some of ‘major challenges facing humanity’.
