How the King's Student app helped me during my time at university

Hi everyone! I am Sneha Ramanathan, and I recently finished my MA in Shakespeare Studies. The King’s Student app helped me a lot during my studies and I can’t wait to tell you about how it can help you too.

Imagine travelling on the London Overground and, half–way through the journey, you receive a text message from your friend saying that your module results have been released on KEATS. You sadly remember that you had left your laptop at home but soon jump with joy when you realise that you can access them on the go through the King’s Student app on your phone.

This is just one example of how I used the King’s Student app for during my time here as a student.

Quick Links

There are several quick links to pages like KEATS, Timetables, Emails and Student Records through which you can access important documents on the go. I regularly use the app to apply for part–time jobs at King’s through King’s Talent Bank and to fill the PATCHS form to book NHS appointments at the King’s NHS Health Centre.

The Librarians from the King’s Libraries & Collections even showed me how I can book study spaces and use Library search to locate books on the go with the app.


During my studies, I always stayed informed about opportunities and updates from King’s Services through Pages, including Careers & Employability and Records & Documents. I also stayed up to date with what’s happening around King’s campuses through the Strand Campus, Waterloo Campus and other campus pages.

Click on Pages on the app’s homepage and tap the heart icon on the top right of the page for exciting and informative posts.

Groups and Direct Messaging

Want to network and make the most out of your connections at King’s? Join groups by heading over to the Groups section on the app’s homepage. I have been part of many exciting groups including KCL Strand Campus Exchange Group which helped me connect with other King’s students.

You can also connect with your course mates and friends by searching for them through the app’s search function. After they accept your connection request, you will be able to send and receive messages from them through the Direct Messaging function available on the navigation pane.

What’s on

Do you fear missing out on fun events happening across King’s? I used to before I discovered 'What’s on' through the Explore section on the app’s navigation pane. From King’s Libraries exhibitions, King’s Academic Skills for Learning workshops to film screenings and networking events, the What’s on section has it all. 

Benefits section

Want to know about the benefits you have as a King’s student? Head over to the Explore icon on the navigation pane and scroll down to the Benefits section to access exclusive benefits, including LinkedIn Learning, access to FutureLearn and so much more.

And that's not all!
