UCL Medical School


Royal Free

Sharing a modern building with the Royal Free Hospital, the Royal Free campus is situated in attractive Hampstead, close to the heart of London. 

Most of the academic units based at the Royal Free campus were previously part of the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine which, in August 1998, merged with UCL. The Royal Free Campus is now one UCL Medical School’s main teaching and research sites.

The campus has an excellent infrastructure with three recently-refurbished lecture theatres, 12 seminar rooms, a well-equipped clinical skills facility and a newly-opened large informal student learning space (the student hub).

The campus also hosts Medical School offices, the Clinical Skills Centre and the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library.

The Student Hub

The hub is located on the lower ground floor and provides a multi-functional study and learning space. The hub features group working areas, quiet study space, a kitchen area and an outdoor terrace.
