BLOOM@Senate House is the perfect place to meet and relax. Offering quiet spots for individual study and spaces for collaborative work. A variety of comfortable breakout spaces and the café make it easy to socialise, study together and share ideas.

Located in the heart of Bloomsbury, Senate House is open to all students and staff across the University of London Federation.

When the weather warms up, you can also meet outdoors on the Senate House Steps.

The once lacklustre Malet Street carpark has been transformed by the installation of a flight of steps, wildflower gardens, and Art Deco-inspired landscaping.

The west entrance of Senate House is now a unique place to meet, eat, and be entertained for students, staff, and the local community.

Register to Senate House Library

UCL students and staff can also join Senate House Library. With over 2 million books and journals, it’s one of the UK’s largest academic libraries for arts, humanities and social services. Register for Library membership online to gain access to the space.
