The Students' Union forms the focus of student social and cultural life at UCL as well as of political and sporting activities. Facilities are cramped but popular and include bars and coffee bars, games rooms, sports and stationery shops, printing facilities, meeting rooms, television, minibuses and a range of catering services. There are over 100 cultural, sports and arts societies. There are many student societies to join ranging through special interest groups, cultural and religious groups, general interest groups such as the Debating Society, departmental societies and sports clubs. The Students' Union also runs cultural and social events throughout the year. There is a flourishing drama group at UCL and student productions of plays and operas are regularly put on at the College's own semi-professional theatre, the UCL Bloomsbury Theatre. Visiting professional companies also visit the theatre to perform.

Study abroad students are required to take a full course load during their enrollment at UCL, normally four courses at 4 credits each per semester.
Students admitted for the full academic year and for the Spring terms from January until June will be required to take the end of year examination in the Summer term. As students admitted for the Fall term only cannot take the examination in the Summer term, the Departments will arrange for these students to either take a special examination or produce extended essays for each course by the end of their studies in December. There is little use made of multiple choice questions as a means of assessment. Following Cornell's policy, grades will be posted on the Cornell transcript in the original formula (1-100). They will not be converted nor factored into the Cornell GPA. Pass/Fail is not acceptable. UCL will provide a translation or proposed conversion of their scale to the standard US 4-point scale for your reference.
Fall Semester: late September - mid-December
Spring Semester: early January - early June
