Euston Square is a London Underground station at the corner of Euston Road and Gower Street, just north of University College London. 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 station was built as Gower Street, changing to its present name in 1909. As of 2005 a new main entrance is under construction in a corner of the new headquarters of the Wellcome Trust.

In December 2005 Network Rail announced plans (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 between the two Euston stations which at the moment are separated by a five-minute walk along Euston Road.

In the newly built Wellcome Trust building, the new entrance to Euston Road station can be seen from a double decker bus as you proceed down Gower Street with steps and signage all ready.
