We are working with the wider Camden community and have introduced a new Zoning system for the Bloomsbury campus as well as Welcome Stations and one-way systems.
Find out more about getting to campus, including information for when you are travelling by bike.
Entering and getting around campus
Arrival at UCL
We have introduced a new Zoning system for the Bloomsbury campus to support social distancing. A map and list of buildings with entrance information is available below, and the new system will be explained to you by your Department. When you arrive at campus, please enter through the entrance point closest to your place of work or study. The entrance points are:
- Green Zone - Front Quad Entrance (Gower Street)
- Blue Zone - Gordon Street Gate Entrance
- Red Zone - Malet Place Gate Entrance (Torrington Place)
Everyone must enter Bloomsbury through one of the main gates/welcome stations where hand sanitiser will be available and staff will be on hand to answer questions. Pease make security aware if you have an agreed variation to any prescribed way-marking route around or within the building so they can help ensure that this is facilitated.

Marked routes and one-way systems
UCL has introduced carefully planned way-marking and one way systems on campus to maintain social distancing. You will find them within the majority of department buildings and around the external areas of UCL. We have tried to ensure step free access as far as is possible but if you have any problems, please contact your department.
If the longer distances involved in the way-marking systems create an access issue for you, please discuss with your department in this first place regarding individual agreed alternatives. They will also arrange, through Estates Area Facilities Managers, areas that apply outside of the department.
Lifts will be in operation, but capacity will be limited. If you are able to, please use the stairs so that the lifts are free for people who need them, for example for access purposes or to move heavy loads. If you find it difficult or can’t use the stairs, please use the lifts.
Staying safe in Camden
UCL is an important part of Camden's community. It is crucial that we work in partnership with local agencies and services on our plans to reopen our campus.
We want our staff and students to feel safe both on and around campus. The Metropolitan Police and Camden Council are taking a coordinated approach across the borough to COVID-19 breaches and any changes to Government guidelines and the easing of lockdown. Camden Council has a Community Presence Officer team placed on the streets, in parks and visiting businesses to educate and engage with the community and to provide reassurance.
UCL is meeting with these services regularly to share information, if you are concerned about any safety issues while in Camden you can contact them directly by calling 020 7974 4444 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
