The Place for Brands

Over 43,000 students are studying at UCL and every year we welcome almost 20,000 new students to our global university. UCL is one of the largest universities in the UK and during term time thousands of students use our spaces and directly engage with the Student’s Union.

The start of the academic calendar offers the most valuable marketing opportunity of the year. Over our three-week welcome period, we welcome 20,000 students as new members to the Students’ Union and to UCL - an amazing opportunity to promote your brand and create long-lasting relationships.

We are engaging with students in many different ways and we can help you with the following options:

The Welcome Fair takes places on Saturday, 1 October and Sunday, 2 October 2021 and runs from 10:00 until 16:00 each day 

The Welcome Fair is without a doubt one of the major highlights of our Welcome Period for new students arriving in September. The fair takes place in the main Quad Marquee and is the best opportunity for your brand to directly engage with thousands of students when they first arrive on campus.
