UCL's History

(source: UCL Website )

Just 175 years ago, the benefits of a university education in England were restricted to men who were members of the Church of England; UCL was founded to challenge that discrimination. UCL was the first university to be established in England after Oxford and Cambridge, providing a progressive alternative to those institutions’ social exclusivity, religious restrictions and academic constraints.

The university's main building was designed by William Wilkins who went on to build the National Gallery.
