King’s College London Alumni Association

300 KCLA Aug

About KCLA

KCLA is a self-governing association of former students and staff who value their link with King’s. Founded in 1920, we work closely with the Alumni Office to help achieve King’s vision to make the world a better place by engaging alumni and encouraging them to give back by supporting its strategic goals.

We achieve our mission by:

  • providing opportunities for alumni to meet and reconnect with King’s;
  • facilitating the development of subject and professional societies, and sports clubs;
    • engaging members by communicating clearly and relevantly with them.
