UCL Open Days




You can go to our booking form and select the subject admissions talks that you are interested in. We provide an overview of the timetable on the website. 
All other talks/tasters/Drop Ins/Tours/One-to-one sessions are not bookable and spaces are given on a first come, first served basis. 
Once you have finished the booking, we will send you your booking confirmation email with your QR code and a link to the portal where you can amend/cancel your booking. Please make sure to bring your QR code with you on the day, as you will need this for accessing all areas of the Open Day. Don’t worry about printing it, the mobile version on smartphones and tablets is perfectly fine. 

Finding your way around the event

Most of the activities will take place around and close by to UCL’s Main Quad, with some activities taking place within departments. There will be signage and maps available to help you find your way to your venues, and we would recommend that you allow enough time to travel between venues. UCL staff and student helpers will also be on hand throughout the event, wearing red and yellow sashes respectively. Please feel free to ask us any questions throughout the afternoon or if you need any help in finding your activities.  

Food and drink

Please feel free to pick up a tea or coffee from the North Cloisters throughout the event.  A selection of food will also be available throughout the event and based in UCL's Main Quad. In addition, UCL has plenty of food and drink outlets around the campus.

Transforming UCL

UCL has begun the largest capital programme in the university’s history.  Transforming UCL is our extensive building and refurbishment programme, which will see investment of over £1.2 billion over the next 10 years to refurbish and develop some of our most iconic buildings, whilst also bringing forward new world-class buildings.  As work is well underway to transform our estate, you may notice some renovation work being carried out around the campus.

Visitors with disabilities

The majority of UCL buildings are wheelchair-friendly.  If you have any access requirements which were not specified when you registered your attendance, please inform one of the UCL staff helpers in a red sash, and we will be happy to help.  A British Sign Language Interpreter will be available during the Open Day.  Please visit the UCL Student Support & Wellbeing stand in the Advice Lounge, Student Centre for further information.
