UCL is preparing to launch its new east London campus, which seeks to harness the power of the research heavyweight to tackle the biggest challenges the world faces.

The Bloomsbury-based institution has expanded into Stratford’s Olympic Park with two new buildings: One Pool Street – which opened last year next to the London Aquatics Centre – and Marshgate, which sits next to the London Stadium and Sir Anish Kapoor’s ArcelorMittal Orbit.

It is the single largest expansion in the university’s near 200-year history and is designed to encourage a focus on environmental issues and “breaking down boundaries between academic disciplines”.

UCL East will be joined later this month in what is being called the “East Bank culture, innovation and learning quarter” by the University of the Arts London, whose London College of Fashion is moving from its current location just off Oxford Street in central London.
