For those looking for a true university experience, UCL's main campus is a perfect choice.

Next, we have UCL East, a brand-new campus in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. The campus boasts modern and sustainable buildings designed to be accessible to all students. One of the standout features of UCL East is its stunning views, with the campus offering a unique perspective on the surrounding area, including the London Stadium. The campus is also close to a cycle path and bridge, making it easy for students to get around and explore the local area.
