A civic university at the heart of London

King’s Vision 2029 sets out our ambition to be a civic university at the heart of London, working in partnership to contribute to the success of the city in which we make our home. 

Through London, students connect their learning with real-world challenges while developing new insights, networks and skills.

Drawing on the lived experience of Londoners as partners in the co-creation of new knowledge, we develop life-changing ideas with local impact and global relevance. 

Deepening our connections with our home boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster, and collaborating with the city's businesses, policymakers, universities and further education institutions, we make a positive difference to our local communities. 

Our priorities in action

King's Civic Charter sets out our commitment to London

King's College London will:
  • Contribute to the vibrant and thriving communities of which we are a part: listening, sharing information and identifying opportunities for partnership 
  • Respect the lived experience of our communities, seeking ways in which we can work together to generate knowledge that contributes to the health and success of our home boroughs and the people who live and work in them
  • Welcome our communities to take part in activities across our campuses
  • Support our communities in challenging disadvantage and inequality through research, teaching and service activities in collaboration with residents, local authorities, schools, businesses, civil society organisations and community groups.
