Seven UCL faculties are being brought together at our new campus, UCL East, which will be based at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

Supported by £100 million of government funding, East Bank will feature world-class culture and education at its heart. UCL is one of the founding partners – along with the London College of Fashion, Sadler’s Wells, and the V&A, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution. The BBC recently announced that it will create a new home for the BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus and BBC Singers at East Bank.

Research and teaching at the new UCL campus will cover subjects such as robotics, artificial intelligence and media, finance, global health, advanced propulsion and sustainable cities.

Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President & Provost, said: "UCL East captures our commitment to creating a diverse, open and accessible site, with spaces for making and advanced manufacturing, object-based learning and conservation, and performances and exhibitions. Our staff will work with, and for, the benefit of local communities."
