King's College London is one of England's oldest and most prestigious university institutions: a multi-faculty research-led university college based in the heart of London with just under 23,000 students, of whom more than 6,200 are postgraduates. It is ranked as one of the world's top 25 universities.
The College offers an intellectually rigorous environment supported by welcoming and caring traditions. King's has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA, and it is now the largest centre for the education of doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals in Europe and home to six Medical Research Council centres.
King's is located in the heart of London and its strength in law, humanities and the social sciences make it a major player in forging links between the arts, culture and universities, and in the development of public policy at national level.
Location & Facilities
King's has four Thames-side campuses (Strand, Waterloo, Guy's, St Thomas') within a single square mile in the heart of London, together with the Institute of Psychiatry and some of the rest of the College's biomedical research and teaching at the Denmark Hill Campus in south London. Information Services Centres and libraries are located at all campuses and provide access to the key services and resources that support teaching, learning and research.
King's offers a range of accommodation to suit the varied needs of students. Most first-year students live in College residences or the University of London's Intercollegiate residences whilst others live in shared student houses or rented flats. The majority of King's residences are in central London, and most are close to King's teaching campuses.
All are within the London Travel Zones 1 and 2:
