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.

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. And if you're looking for something to do in the nearby area, we've put together a guide on things to do around UCL East!

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!

Whether you have an event you want us to help you host, have any ideas for us, or have any general questions, we're here to help. Drop us a line at [email protected]
