External Speakers

All requests for external speakers to be approved must be submitted 10 working days in advance of the event. If this deadline is not met, UCLU reserves the right to cancel your event.

Access and Equality at our Events

  1. UCL’s general expectation is that any event or meeting held in UCL premises will be open to all, regardless of gender. There are exceptions to this (for example training sessions of men’s and women’s sports clubs), but events should be open to all unless they are specifically designed for one gender or another.
  2. There should be no enforced segregation by gender at events. Pre-allocation of seats by gender, and the use of stewards to direct persons attending a meeting to gender segregated seating are unacceptable.
  3. It is acceptable for individuals attending events to choose to sit with members of their own gender. If individuals attending an event wish to segregate themselves on a voluntary basis, it is not acceptable for other members of the audience to compel them to mix, and to do so may constitute harassment.
  4. Please see specific Access Information for Mully’s.
