The station opened as part of the original Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway on 22 June 1907 under the name "Euston Road", and this name can still be seen in the Northern line platform tiling. The platforms were built on the outside of the running lines. The station's name changed to "Warren Street" the following year. In 1934, the current station building replaced the original when escalators were installed.
Due to the right-hand running on the Victoria line and the Northern line having side platforms, the doors open on the left on all four platforms. The Northern line northbound platform of the station was used for location filming in the movie Death Line (1972). On 27 April 2012 Warren Street station became the first London Underground Wi-Fi enabled tube station.
