King's College London

King's College London

King's College London is one of England's four oldest and most prestigious university institutions: a multi-Faculty research-led university college based in the heart of London. It is ranked as one of the world's top 25 universities. The College is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and understanding in the service of society; and welcomes a diverse range of staff, students and visitors to its community.

With four Thames-side campuses and a major site at Denmark Hill, the College has one of the largest university estates in the UK and its buildings, many of which are listed, offer a wide range of challenges. In 1999, the College began the first phase of a major redevelopment programme to transform its estate, and work continues both in the delivery of major new buildings and in the redevelopment of existing. As each new scheme commences, every opportunity is taken to deliver and enhance accessibility.

In keeping with our Disability Equality Scheme the College aims to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people.

Current facilities include:

  • Study bedrooms which have been adapted to meet the needs of students with impaired mobility
  • Provision for study skills and other support for students with specific learning difficulties
  • Specialist software for blind, visually impaired and dyslexic students

The College has a firm commitment to disability equality and the Disability and Dyslexia Service supports disabled students to enable them to undertake their studies and enjoy a satisfying student experience. There is an active disabled student society which is working closely with the College to identify opportunities for enhancements to facilities and practice.
