UCL hosts an exciting programme of events including academic lectures, seminars, workshops, festivals, activities and performances, exhibitions, and open days. The majority of our events are open to UCL students, staff, alumni and the general public. Most events are free unless otherwise stated and some may require registration in advance.
Upcoming events are featured on the UCL Minds events calendar and you can sign up to receive our UCL Minds e-newsletter.

Door Opening Times

We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the event is scheduled to start. Tickets do not guarantee entry to the venue as entry is on a first come, first served basis for ticketholders.

Unless otherwise stated, audience members are allowed to bring bags into UCL events, but we reserve the right to make a search of bags a condition of entry to UCL venues. Most UCL venues do not have a cloakroom so attendees are discouraged from bringing large bags or luggage with them.
