Campus Tours

UCL's historic Bloomsbury campus in central London is a fascinating place to visit. As you explore, you'll get a sense of what makes UCL stand out – from our wide range of facilities, our excellent reputation, our pioneering history and our greatest strength, the students and staff who study and work here.

When do guided tours take place?

Throughout April to June, tours will be running every Wednesday and Friday at 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00, and every Saturday at 11:00, 12:00 and 13:00.

We are running increased tours during May Half Term (w/c 29 May). From Tuesday 30 May to Friday 02 June, tours will take place daily, and on the hour, between 10:00 and 16:00 (the last tour starting at 15:00). On Saturday 03 June, tours will take place on the hour between 11:00 and 16:00 (the last tour starting at 15:00).

There will be no guided tours taking place from 01 April - 18 April. You are more than welcome to take a self-guided tour of campus whenever it suits you outside of our Easter closure dates, which are from 5.30pm on 5th April to 9am on 13th April.

Tours book up extremely quickly so we recommend you book as soon as possible.

What is covered on a guided tour?

Our guided tours will give you an opportunity to ask general questions relating to:

  • the application process
  • how to apply
  • look for accommodation
  • see what it's like to be a student in London and at UCL.

These tours are lead by an experienced Student Ambassador or a member of staff. 

These are general tours of our Bloomsbury campus. We are unable to include access to any UCL Halls of Residence during a guided tour.

Contact campustours@ucl.ac.uk for more information.

Disabled access

The majority of the UCL campus and the entirety of the campus tour is fully accessible, but if you have any special requirements, please get in touch before you visit on campustours@ucl.ac.uk and we will be happy to help.

Some departments may offer their own tours. You can find contact details for individual departments on the relevant departmental website.
