The Bartlett at UCL East
Welcome to The Bartlett at UCL East
Rooted in East London, The Bartlett at UCL East looks to global horizons.
Within the dynamic environment of the new UCL East campus our activities are dedicated to finding cross-sector solutions to transdisciplinary built environment challenges: from reducing inequality, to building sustainable cities, to bringing about racial, social and climate justice.
To address these challenges, new bespoke programmes have been developed in partnership with local, industry and government partners. In line with The Bartlett’s history and ethos, learning and research at UCL East will be practice-led and hands-on. State-of-the-art facilities are complemented by living labs, live projects, community co-design, and citizen science.
Research and study at UCL East will are closely tied to the local creative, community and environmental ecologies. East London itself is a key context for collaboration and insight into key urban questions.
Our bespoke programmes and research at UCL East have been co-designed with civic, industry and government partners with a unique focus on innovation, experimentation and real-world impact.

Learning and research at UCL
By addressing the challenges as transdisciplinary in nature, we will be empowered to build a better future.
The Bartlett's academic investigation of the urban spaces in which we live will cover everything from inclusivity, inequality, to infrastructure and beyond
The new campus aims to build close ties with local communities, to understand directly how they are affected by these changes.
New studio and collaboration spaces will support progressive thinking at UCL East:
Urban Room & Memory Workshop
Local stakeholders will come together with the academic community to discuss how industry, globalisation and gentrification will shape the area’s future.
Connected Environments Lab
This living lab will serve as a centre for sensing, analysing and visualising data to help us understand urban and natural spaces.
This hub will bring together architects, civil engineers, and building service engineers with cross-sector experts to find the solutions of the future.
Executive Education Spaces
Through our executive education programme, policy-makers, architects, civil engineers, and building service engineers will come together with other experts across the built environment sector to find solutions to global challenges.
