In line with the changing protocol surrounding the novel coronavirus COVID-19, it is with regret that UCL Urban Laboratory has taken the decision to cancel all in-person events and public engagement activities until further notice.

UCL buildings are currently closed to all but essential work addressing the Covid-19 pandemic.

UCL Urban Laboratory do not expect to be able to run activities involving a public element in person for the foreseeable future.

We intend to reschedule activities for the next Academic Year and will also be exploring the feasibility of alternative formats for planned activities, which may include additional video and audio material, setting up virtual events, and new publishing projects.

Please note that our office is closed and we are working from home, so please email rather than attempt to call our staff members via their listed numbers on this website.

We will continue to produce and share research, analysis, and multimedia content on our website and social media channels.
