UCL East


UCL East

UCL East is the next chapter in our disruptive thinking, the biggest development in UCL's nearly 200-year history. Our East campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park offers exciting new degrees and the space needed to tackle the biggest challenges facing our planet.

Our One Pool Street base opened last autumn. Full of multidisciplinary research labs and studios exploring ecology, technology, robotics, urbanism, culture, and heritage, with a lecture theatre doubling as a cinema, a shop, café and homes for 500+ students.

Marshgate, which opened this September, is eight floors of hi-tech, cross-disciplinary research labs, teaching areas, fabrication workshops, collaboration spaces, a library, a refectory, and a UCL Institute of Making.

UCL East is accessible, sustainable and open to the public, with exhibitions and public art from local artists.
