Every year, during the first term, a group of students and several members of the academic staff from the Department spend the weekend at Cumberland Lodge, a beautiful country house close to Royal Lodge, the late Queen Mother’s residence which she left to the Duke of York, in Windsor Great Park. The intention is to get students and staff away from the College environment and for them to get to know each other better over discussions of interesting problems in physics and astronomy in an informal, pleasant environment.  The majority of students attending are from Year 1, though other years and postgraduates are also well-represented.  

Talks are given by members of staff, and invited people from outside UCL. Topics include some of the research activities of the Department, sometimes a light-hearted look at Science. The weekend concludes with a general discussion period, chaired by the Departmental Teaching Committee chairman, during which students can give their opinions about the Department, the lecture courses, or indeed any topic which they wish to raise. In addition to the talks, ample time is available for informal discussions and for social activities, two of the most popular of which are walking in Windsor Great Park and the Saturday night party. 

Students travel to Cumberland Lodge by coach, leaving the College site on the Friday afternoon and returning to London after tea on the Sunday evening. The fee of £60 includes transportation and all meals. You are encouraged to book early as places are limited.
