The Courtauld became a self-governing college of the University of London in 2002. The University of London is a federal University and is one of the oldest, largest and most diverse universities in the UK. The teaching is carried by the 18 Colleges and Institutes that comprise the University. While studying, students belong to The Courtauld as well as the University of London itself. This allows students to have access to a wide range of facilities and services.
Between the Colleges and Institutes the University of London has over 120,000 students studying over 3700 courses. Courtauld students have access to the University of London central resources such as Senate House Library, which offers one of the world's most significant collections in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The eight collaborating libraries, at Senate House and for the Institutes of the School of Advanced Study together provide services to over 100,000 registered readers every year.
If you're studying for a University of London degree you're automatically entitled to be a member of the University of London Union (ULU). Membership of ULU is free and enables you to get involved with everything the Union has to offer including sports, societies and access into our bars.
