Charter and Statutes of King's College London, granted in May 2009 and replacing all earlier versions.

Charter and Statutes

Ordinances of King's College London approved by the College Council under Article 12 of the College Charter.


Together with the College's Charter and Statutes and Ordinances, the regulations establish a governance framework which ensures the proper conduct of the university's activities.

Types of regulation

The College is an ‘exempt’ charity under Schedule 3 of the Charities Act 2011 for the purposes of UK charity legislation. This means that we are not registered with the Charity Commission and have no charity registration number. Under the Charities Act 2006, King’s and other universities which are exempt charities are regulated by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as ‘principal regulator’ on behalf of the Commission.

King's as a charity

King’s Vision 2029 sets out our ambition to make the world a better place. It builds upon our history of making a significant contribution to society and takes us to our 200th anniversary in 2029.
