Find out all you need to know about the ExCeL London as your examination venue.


The ExCeL is a large venue, please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your exam to give you ample time to locate your seat. There will be a UCL pop-up desk present where you can go to for extra information on the day if required.

Plan your journey ahead of your exam using the TfL journey planner.

The ExCeL is serviced by two DLR (Docklands Light Railway) stations, Prince Regent, nearest to the East entrance, and Custom House which is nearest to the West entrance. However you can walk from the West entrance to the East entrance as they are all on the same level.

Where is your exam hall?

The ExCeL has many exhibition halls - nearer to the exam period the halls being used for each exam week will be indicated here.

Don't worry if you get off at the wrong station, as you can walk from one end of the ExCeL to the other, with the exception of Friday 25 May where you must use Prince Regent DLR station.

There are a small number of exams that will remain on campus. Please make sure you check your timetable. All students with special examinations will be on campus.

Finding your seat

On your exam timetable there will be a seat number allocated to you, see below for which colour zone your seat is allocated to. You will be allocated a different seat number for each of your exams.

Every exam hall will be zoned by colours. You will be directed to place bags and coats in the same colour zone as your seat.

This will be updated nearer your exams.
