Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS)



The IAS has two rooms available to book, the IAS Forum and the IAS Common Ground.

Our two event rooms, the IAS Forum and the IAS Common Ground, can be found on the South Wing, on UCL's main Bloomsbury campus.

Please refer to the room's webpage to ensure you understand what equipment is available and the booking conditions. Instructions for use of the IT facilities can be found in each room.

    Please note

    We only manage our own events (and those of the IAS Research Centres). Therefore, if you require an Eventbrite, a Zoom/Teams link, catering or IT support you, or your department, will need to organise this. 

    There is no charge for the room and we also promote the event for free. However, any other costs, such as catering, travel or speaker fees, would have to be covered by yourself or your department.

    The rooms cannot be booked through CMIS-Go. If you are interested in using one of our rooms please email instituteofadvancedstudies@ucl.ac.uk, confirming the following: 

    • Event title: 
    • Date: 
    • Time: 
    • Name of organiser(s) and contact details: 
    • Name of any external speakers:
    • Do you want the event to be advertised on our website and in our newsletter? Please provide us with an image (800x500px) and a short description if so. If you plan to use Eventbrite (or another booking system) please forward us the link to include on the event page.

    Priority will be given to bookings for research-related events.
