University College London, which operates as UCL, is a major public research university based in London, United Kingdom. The university is a member institution of the federal University of London- and is the second-largest university in the United Kingdom by total enrolment and the largest by postgraduate enrolment.
The university was founded in 1826, as London University, by founders inspired by the radical ideas of Jeremy Bentham. The University College London was the first university institution to be founded in London, and the first in England to be entirely temporal and to admit students regardless of their religion.
The University College London also makes contested claims to be the third-oldest university in England, and the first to admit women. In 1836, the university became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London, which was granted a royal charter in the same year.
The university has grown through mergers, including with the Institute of Ophthalmology (in 1995), the Institute of Neurology (in 1997), the Royal Free Hospital Medical School (in 1998), the Eastman Dental Institute (in 1999), the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (in 1999), the School of Pharmacy (in 2012), and the Institute of Education (in 2014).
