UCL access and benefits
Lunch Hour Lectures
The UCL lunch hour lecture series comprises informative, entertaining and often controversial talks by UCL academics at the leading edge of their disciplines.
UCL alumni are entitled to a free reference ticket which gives you access to UCL’s main libraries. In addition, an annual discounted subscription of £50 enables you to borrow up to five books at a time. You will need proof of address, photographic proof of identity and your UCL Alumni Card when making your application. Alumni wishing to take up the borrowing access should also bring in a passport-sized photograph. For further information, please see the library's information page.
