  • Open House London
  • UCL will open its doors to the public on Sunday 16th September 2007, from 10am-4pm, as part of the annual Open House London event. This sees over 600 London buildings, selected for their architectural significance, made available to the public during the course of the weekend.

    As a leading research university, with strengths across the arts and sciences, the UCL building stock has developed organically to meet the needs of generations of academics and students. On the main Bloomsbury campus, visitors will find state-of-the-art new buildings, dedicated to nanotechnology and biomedicine, jostling alongside grand 19th-century designs. 

    The main campus is home to the Strang Print room, with over 10,000 fine art objects, the UCL Grant Museum, which houses UCL's zoology collections, and the UCL Petrie Museum of Egyptian & Sudanese archaeology.
