19 Things You Really Miss About Studying at UCL When You Graduate

Exam season isn’t one of them.

1. Passing around the £1 drinks.

Mondays at Phineas meant one thing only – cheap alcohol.

2. The coffee at the Print Room.

And watching people think you can actually print stuff there.

3. You’ll even miss the Main Library.

It may be the home of all your stress but it’s so pretty.

4. Sitting on the Portico steps.

There’s no greater sense of UCL belonging like sitting on the Portico steps on a sunny spring afternoon.

6. Having lots of great food just 5 minutes away from you.

Franco Manca, Wasabi, Japanese Canteen… yes please.

13. ULU.

You won’t miss the time they changed the name to Student Central though.

The bars are open – come down for a drink! #beer #bar #friday #students #cheap #drinks #london #food #fridaynight

14. And crashing the Freshers’ events in second year.

UCL hadn’t really begun without KOKO’s welcome event.

KOKO London last night was amazing!.❤

15. Jeremy Bentham.

Weird but iconic. What would UCL have been without him?

16. Going to Sports night every week.

Even though you said you wouldn’t.

17. And hanging out in Ramsey even though you didn’t live there.

It was just the place to be.

18. Really, you’ll just miss studying in London.

19. And calling UCL home.
