UCL News


Services for media

The UCL Media Relations team is the university’s central press office. We connect journalists to academics who are experts in their field and promote UCL research and teaching throughout the global media.

Find an expert

We manage an extensive database of UCL academics who are happy to be contacted by the media in relation to their area of research and expertise. Please use our Find an Expert service to search for a relevant academic, but contact us if you can't find what you're looking for.


UCL Media Relations can advise broadcasters and production companies wishing to film at UCL, where this is linked to a UCL story or features a UCL researcher. Please contact us if you require our assistance.

TV crews and production companies who wish to film on the UCL campus for non-UCL related stories should contact UCL Room Bookings directly on 020 3108 7577. The UCL Room Bookings website lists the rooms and areas that can be booked on campus. The team regularly takes calls from journalists and can assist in finding rooms to suit particular needs.

Films about news, research and activities at UCL can also be found on our YouTube channel – UCLTV.

Sign up for press releases

We distribute regular press releases about institutional news and the latest research from across UCL.
