Foundation Day 2020
The University of London usually celebrates the foundation of the institution in 1836 with a ceremony in our headquarter building, Senate House.
In 2020, instead of hosting our annual flagship Foundation Day event we did things a bit differently, and put together a Foundation Day Celebration video for you to enjoy. The video was premiered at 1400 GMT on 24 November 2020.
Watch the Celebration video
The video gives you some insight into the history of the event, a message from our Chancellor, Her Royal Highness, Princess Royal and feature some other interesting facts and material for you to enjoy. This allows us to share our memories of previous Foundation Days and Vice-Chancellor Professor Wendy Thomson who outlined future plans for the University.
