Plug in to UCL with social media and myUCL

30 September 2015

As a new student you'll soon discover that there's a lot going on at UCL, from talks and exhibitions, to career opportunities and interesting stories about student life.

Plug in to myUCL

It can be hard to sort through the noise but don't' worry, help is at hand. UCL has a variety of social media channels, as well as myUCL a weekly student e-newsletter to help you plug in to UCL.


myUCL hits your inbox every Friday afternoon and features UCL-wide announcements, news, events, features, opportunities and need-to-know information from across campus.

The e-newsletter is read by more than 10,000 students - both undergraduate and postgraduate - per week. Past issues of myUCL are available to browse and download in an archive hosted on UCL's digital library collection website.

How can I submit a story?

Plug in to UCL social media

We want you to help us put the 'my' in myUCL. If you have something you would like to be included in myUCL, please send us an email with a brief outline to studentcommunications@ucl.ac.uk.
