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? 

Guided tours will be running from Monday 8 April until Saturday 22 June on Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:00 and 14:00 and on Saturdays at 11:00 and 13:00.

Our Campus Tours are in high demand so we recommend you book as soon as possible. If you are unable to book a tour, we would encourage you to consider a self-guided tour of campus. You are not required to book if you opt for a self-guided tour but should be mindful of our closure dates, when it would not be possible to visit.

Guided Campus Tours will resume on Wednesday 3 July. Tour dates for July and August will follow our regular tour schedule, with tours offered on Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:00 and 14:00 and Saturdays at 11:00 and 13:00. Tour dates for July and August will be available to book from mid-June.

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.

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.

UCL East

We're in the process of arranging guided tours at our UCL East campus and will update this page with further details once they are available to book. In the meantime, if you wish to visit UCL East, please contact us at campustours@ucl.ac.uk and we can arrange this for you.
