King’s College London

The fourth-oldest university in England, and one of the two founding colleges of the world-renowned University of London, King’s was established in 1829 by King George IV. With nine faculties, institutions and schools, it has kept its reputation and is one of the top 25 universities in the world.

Among its many world-changing achievements, King’s was home to the discovery of the structure of DNA, the origins of IVF, and research that helped develop radio, TV and mobile phones. 12 people who have worked at or studied at King’s have won Nobel Prizes. Notable alumni includes poet John Keats, civil rights activist Desmond Tutu, physicist Peter Higgs, and Florence Nightingale, who founded the world's first professional school of nursing at St Thomas' Hospital in 1860.

King’s has five London campuses, including its prominent and historical campus on the Strand in London’s West End. Surrounded by London’s cultural and political history, it’s no surprise that King’s alumni have also won Oscars, Grammys and Emmys.

Our Paris Gardens building is ideally located for their Waterloo campus and just across the river from their main Strand campus. Both Paris Gardens and our Bankside building are a short walk from the Guy and St. Thomas’ campuses. Our Hoxton and Magenta House buildings are also both round the corner from Overground stations which take you to the Denmark Hill campus in 25-30 minutes. Across them you’ll find onsite gyms and laundries, barbecue areas, outdoor courtyards and other great perks.
