Tour the neighbourhood

Your life in the city is a crucial part of your UCL education. Surrounded by some of the the UK's most iconic cultural and intellectual institutions, our Bloomsbury campus is a calm haven in the bustling heart of London.

Our historic Bloomsbury location


Bloomsbury itself is the historic home of Virginia Woolf and her ‘Bloomsbury Group’: writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists who proudly challenged convention in both their lives and their work during the first half of the 20th century.

 

Culture and the Knowledge Quarter

London offers you an unrivalled range of culture, history, art and leisure.
