UCL East is a new campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

One Pool Street is home for many students with 552 rooms living directly above the campus. Here we're running a shop on the ground floor.

In September 2023 UCL's biggest building, Marshgate, opened and we welcomed thousands of new students to study and learn.

Your Students' Union will be here to ensure you have a great time at UCL East. Every student here will be able to engage with activities at UCL East and across our other sites.

Make sure you're following us on Instagram and Twitter to keep up with all the amazing events and opportunities you can get involved with!
