You’ll hear the words ‘University of London’ a lot during your time here. It’s not an actual university just a collection of universities of which we are one.
The UoL is the umbrella company under which the University of London Union (ULU) was formed. ULU was a student run student union with its headquarters based in Malet Street. After ULU was abolished 2 years ago, it was replaced by Student Central which holds all the same events but not run by students.
Student Central is a good place to go to meet people from other universities and tends to be the hangout of those living in Intercollegiate Halls. It also runs interuniversity societies. If there’s anything you feel you can’t do at Courtauld, get in touch with them and see what they have to offer!
