UCL London Home

As London’s global university, UCL is in, of and for London, making a far-reaching economic, health, environmental, cultural and social contribution to our home city.

Led by Professor Alan Thompson, Pro Vice Provost (London), we engage and partner with policymakers, local government, creative and cultural organisations, industry, healthcare providers, schools, colleges and other HEIs and many more to maximise the benefit to London of our research and translation, education, entrepreneurship, volunteering and public engagement. 

We attract around 55,000 students and staff from over 150 countries to work, study and play in the capital, enhancing its vibrancy and diversity. And we nurture an active and growing global alumni community of over 250,000 people in more than 190 countries, all with a lifelong connection to London thanks to the transformative experience of studying at UCL.
