University of London Union (ULU)

Throughout The Cuckoo’s Calling, Cormoran Strike makes regular visits to the University of London Union (ULU), mostly to use the showers. He does this without being a student, walking determinedly past reception with a scowl on his face. His glowering pays off: No one ever challenges his right to be there.

Strike also uses the ULU café, where he once had a stale ham roll and a bar of chocolate.

On the day after Strike got drunk in The Tottenham after finding out Charlotte Campbell is engaged to Jago Ross, he goes to ULU to have a shower and to use the large swimming pool before going to meet Ciara Porter and Bryony Radford.
