Euston Square is a London Underground station at the corner of Euston Road and Gower Street, just north of University College London (not to be confused with nearby Euston tube station). The station, which is within walking distance of Euston railway station, is on the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, between Great Portland Street and King's Cross St. Pancras. It is in Zone 1 of the underground. The postcode is NW1 2LU.

The station was built as Gower Street, changing to its present name in 1909. In late 2006 the new entrance on the south side of Euston Road opened in a corner of the new headquarters of the Wellcome Trust replacing the old entrance (pictured).

In December 2005 Network Rail announced plans [http://www.alwaystouchout.com/project/125 (1)] to create a subway link between the station and Euston station as part of the re-development of Euston station. This will create a direct link for users of heavy rail services which terminate at Euston.

Both Warren Street and Euston tube stations are within close walking distance.
