The Data for Policy 2019 Conference is being hosted by University College London.
UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any religion and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
UCL operates in a global context and is committed to excellence, innovation and the promotion of global understanding in all of its activities: research, teaching, learning, enterprise and community engagement. Its distinctive approach seeks to inspire its community of staff, students and partners to transform how the world is understood, how knowledge is created and shared and the way that global problems are solved.
UCL is located in the Bloomsbury district at the very centre of London.
Bus: UCL’s Gower Street site is served by many Transport for London bus routes. Buses travelling from north to south stop in Gower Street, immediately outside UCL’s main gate, while those travelling from south to north stop outside Warren Street station, about five minutes’ walk from UCL. Services to these stops include route numbers: 10, 14, 24, 29, 73, 134, 390.
London Underground: The closest tube stations to UCL’s Gower Street site are Euston Square (Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan and Circle lines), Warren Street (Northern and Victoria lines), Euston (Northern and Victoria lines) and Russell Square (Piccadilly line)
Rail Overground: London has many mainline rail stations. Most of these are a short journey away from UCL, with the stations at Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras being within easy walking distance. Trains from London serve destinations across the UK.
Delegates are responsible for securing their own accommodation whilst in London. There are numerous hotels and other accommodation options within walking distance of the Conference Centre.
