King's College London (referred to as KCL) is an English public research university based in London. Under the patronage of King George IV and the Duke of Wellington, King's was founded by royal charter in 1829. In 1836, King's became one of the University of London's two founding colleges. It is one of England's oldest university-level institutions. In the late twentieth century, King's grew by merging with Queen Elizabeth College and Chelsea College of Science and Technology (in 1985), the Institute of Psychiatry (in 1997), the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, and the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery (in 1998). King's is frequently recognised as one of the best and most prestigious universities in the world. The Association of Commonwealth Universities, the European University Association and the Russell Group are among the academic organisations that King's belongs to. Six Medical Research Council centres are located at King's, and the university is a founding member of the King's Health Partners academic health sciences centre, the Francis Crick Institute, and MedCity. It has the world's first nursing school, the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, and is the largest European institution for graduate and post-graduate medical instruction and biomedical research in terms of student numbers. King's is part of the "golden triangle" of institutions that are located in the cities of Oxford, Cambridge, and London. By virtue of its founding, King's has royal sponsorship. Queen Elizabeth II is the current patron. 14 Nobel laureates, as well as contributors to the discovery of DNA structure, Hepatitis C, the Hepatitis D genome, and the Higgs boson; pioneers of in-vitro fertilisation, stem cell/mammalian cloning, and the modern hospice movement; and key researchers who advanced radar, radio, television, and mobile phones, are among King's alumni and staff. Heads of state, governments, and international organisations are among the alumni, as are nineteen members of the current House of Commons and seventeen members of the current House of Lords, as well as three Oscar winners, three Grammy winners, and one Emmy winner.
King's College London has five campuses: the ancient Strand Campus in central London, three Thames-side campuses (Guy's, St Thomas', and Waterloo) nearby, and one in Denmark Hill in south London. It also has a presence in Shrivenham, where it offers professional military training, and in Newquay, Cornwall, where it operates an information service centre.
King's University has nine academic faculties, which are split into schools (for Social Science & Public Policy, Life Sciences & Medicine), departments, centres, and research divisions as of 2017. The most recent addition was King's Business School, which debuted in August 2017 and is housed at Bush House.
Denmark Hill Campus is the only campus not located on the River Thames, and is located in south London on the boundaries of the London Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark in Camberwell. King's College Hospital, Maudsley Hospital, and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience are all located on the same site (IoPPN). The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience, as well as elements of the Dental Institute and School of Medicine, as well as King's College Hall, a huge hall of residence, are all located here. The Weston Education Centre (WEC), the James Black Centre, the Rayne Institute (haemato-oncology), and the Cicely Saunders Institute are among the other structures on site (palliative care).
The Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine and the Dental Institute are both located on Guy's Campus, which is near London Bridge and the Shard on the South Bank of the Thames.
The Strand Campus was King's first campus, and it is located on the Strand in the City of Westminster, with River Thames frontage. The Strand Campus is home to King's arts and scientific faculties, including the Arts & Humanities, Law, Business, Social Science & Public Policy, and Natural & Mathematical Sciences colleges (formerly Physical Sciences & Engineering).
Parts of the School of Medicine and the Dental Institute are located on the St Thomas' Campus in the London Borough of Lambeth, which faces the Houses of Parliament across the Thames. Also nearby is the Florence Nightingale Museum.
The Waterloo Campus, which includes the James Clerk Maxwell Building, the Franklin–Wilkins Building, and the Waterloo Bridge Wing Building, is located across Waterloo Bridge from the Strand Campus, near the Southbank Centre in the London Borough of Lambeth.
King maintains an academic presence and estate at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom in Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, despite the fact that it is not an official campus. Since 2000, the Joint Services Command and Staff College, run by King's Defence Studies Department, has provided professional military training to many of the UK armed forces under a contract with the Ministry of Defence.
