King’s is at the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities, in a perfect location for the liberal arts. The university is within easy reach of the centres of political power, global banking, and national and international justice as well as at the centre of a buzzing cultural metropolis which will enrich and shape students’ experience of university life.
You'll have access to the outstanding collections and research facilities in the Maughan and Senate House Libraries, as well as the educational, social and sporting opportunities provided by the College and the University of London. The King's College London Students' Union is a great source of help and information, and boasts club for every interest.
As part of your degree, you'll be encouraged to use the facilities of the cultural institutions with which we have links - see our resources page for just a few of these – and all the major galleries and museums of London are on our doorstep.
There are countless non- academic attractions in London - why not discover one of London’s many parks, such as Kensington Gardens and Regent’s Park. Hampstead Heath has views over all London, and nearby you'll find Keats House, where one of our alumni, John Keats, wrote some of his most famous poetry. During the summer months, London’s parks often play host to major music events, including the Wireless Festival and Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park, while for classical music lovers there's Proms in the Park and Holland Park Opera. London also offers a wealth of shopping opportunities. Visit the high street giants in Oxford Street or Westfield, or the quirky market stalls of Lower Marsh (round the corner from our Waterloo Campus) and the Apple Market in Covent Garden (by the Strand). Foodies will enjoy Borough Market (a stone's throw from our Guy's Campus) or the independent shops of Marylebone High Street.
