Banks Hub

The Banks Hub brings together several major UK banks on campus to help new international students open an account.

As part of the International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP), the Banks Hub brings together a number of UK banks onto the UCL campus to assist new international students with the account opening process. 

Once you have completed your in-person enrolment, just ask a member of staff for directions and they will point you towards the Hub. 

At the Banks Hub you will find a range of representatives from five of the main UK banks, who will be on hand to assist you and discuss the banking options available to you.

Some banks may be able to open an account for you in full on the day. Other banks will be able to provide information, answer questions and speed up the process of opening account by allocating in-branch appointments (most local bank branches are within walking distance from the UCL campus). They will also be able to check your paperwork to ensure you have all the correct documentation to open an account. 

All students visiting the Banks Hub are strongly advised to do some research online beforehand. Further information on the different account options is available on this page.  

The Banks Hub will be open on the following days from 9.30am to 5.00pm:

  • Wednesday 19 September
  • Thursday 20 September
  • Friday 21 September
  • Monday 24 September
  • Tuesday 25 September

Please note that these times may be subject to change.
