How will the project affect me? Information for students

The project to transform Bentham House means that the way that we teach, work and study in the Faculty will change during refurbishment period. As a result of the works to Bentham House, the Faculty has left the building and moved to alternative accommodation nearby at Bidborough House.

You will have many questions about the how’s, when’s and what’s of the decant period – the period when we will not be based at Bentham House – as well as about the progress and finer details of the transformation project itself.

Both the project to move the Faculty to alternative accommodation during the decant period and the transformation project are complex, and as further detailed information becomes available, we will publish it on these pages.

At this stage of the project however, we are able to provide some broad answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about what will happen during the decant and how it might affect you.

When will UCL Laws leave Bentham House?

We moved out of Bentham House at the end of Term 3 2015.

When will we reoccupy Bentham House?

We hope to be able to reoccupy Bentham House in the summer of 2017.

Where will my teaching take place?

Teaching will take place across the UCL Bloomsbury Campus and at other academic institutions in the area. Teaching may also be hosted at external training and event facilities based nearby in Bloomsbury.

There may be very limited small group tutorial teaching in Bidborough House, but we are not able to host large scale teaching activities there.
