Warren Street tube station is a London Underground station, located at the intersection of Tottenham Court Road and Euston Road. It is the nearest tube station to University College Hospital, being opposite the newly opened main building. It is also very close to Euston Square station.

The station opened as part of the Charing Cross, Euston & Highgate Railway on 22 June 1907 under the name Euston Road, and this name can still be seen in the Northern Line platform tiling. The station's name changed to Warren Street the following year. The current station building replaced the original when escalators were installed. The Victoria Line platforms opened in 1968.

At the next station northwards, Euston, there is cross-platform interchange between the Northbound Victoria line and Northbound Northern line (Bank branch); and Southbound Victoria line and Southbound Northern line (Bank branch). To facilitate this, the Victoria line tracks had to switch from the standard left-hand running to right-hand, making the cross-platform interchange in reality in opposite directions, as both lines run east-west at this point. Warren Street also has right-hand running due to its proximity to Euston. The Victoria line platforms at King's Cross St. Pancras (the next station on from Euston) also displays this feature for the same reason.

Warren Street tube station was the site of one of the bombs in the London terrorist attacks on 21 July 2005. The Northern Line northbound platform of the station was used for location filming in the movie Death Line (1972).

Euston Square

Euston Square is a London Underground station near Euston station, at the corner of Euston Road and Gower Street, just north of University College London.

The station opened in 1863 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. There is also a subway entrance on the north side of Euston Road.

In December 2005 Network Rail announced plans 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. These plans would also be pursued during a rebuilding for High Speed 2.

Both Warren Street and Euston tube stations are within close walking distance. In early 2011 two new lifts linking the westbound platform to the street opened. On top of this, a modern entrance to the station opened.
