Built Environment

We are the Bartlett: UCL's global faculty of the built environment. Our sections span the entire area of study and research. Individually, they lead their fields. In partnership, they develop new responses to pressing world issues. As a whole, they represent a world-leading, multidisciplinary faculty, united by the radical spirit of UCL.


Our schools and sections cover disciplines from architecture and planning, to energy and the global south, and together they form the UK’s most comprehensive and innovative faculty of the built environment.

We offer a full range of programmes in the built environment field, from undergraduate to postgraduate, as well as at MRes and doctoral levels. We also run a range of summer schools and foundation courses and are developing an executive education programme for future leaders in the built environment professions.
