UCL London


UCL in London

UCL is helping to improve the lives of Londoners in many different ways. Working closely with the city’s people, we co-create projects that make a practical and positive difference to their lives.

These pages highlight the rich array of activities to emerge from UCL’s ongoing dialogue with Londoners. These range from skills training and job creation schemes to citizen-led projects helping improve the air we breathe.
