What to Bring

Please make sure you bring sun cream in case the weather is hot and a coat or jacket in case it rains. You can never be sure with the English weather!  Please also ensure you bring a water bottle. There are water fountains across the campus buildings and you can use the app/ask staff to identify the nearest locations. Make sure that you stay hydrated throughout the day! And don’t forget comfortable shoes – your students may end up doing lots of walking!

Information and check-in points

Festival Information Points are located near the main entrance and can be easily identified on the relevant festival map. Please inform Staff at the Festival Information Point immediately should any emergency arise. Whilst we don’t recommend
bringing valuables to the festival, the information point is also where any lost and found property will be held.

Toilet Facilities

There are a number of toilets, including wheelchair accessible and gender-neutral, toilets across UCL’s campus buildings. Please refer to the Festival app/map on the day or ask a member of staff for details.


UCL is committed to improving the accessibility of its estate, thereby providing an environment which supports equal access and inclusion to UCL and its wider community. The majority of our spaces have published Access Guides available through the UCL Go app or online.

Food and drink

There are a variety of eating outlets on campus with a wide choice of options and there will be a number of additional food stalls available throughout the festival period. Full details of food options on campus will be available in the UCL Go App. Of course, there are also a wealth of places to eat in the wider areas surrounding our campus buildings.
