King's College London was founded in 1828-9 by a group of eminent politicians, churchmen and others. They wanted a Church of England alternative to what later became University College London (UCL, founded in 1826), known as 'the godless college in Gower Street'. King's was granted a royal charter by King George IV on 14 August 1829.

The University of London was established in 1836 with King's and UCL its two founding colleges.

King's professors played a major part in nineteenth-century science and in extending higher education to women and working men through evening classes. It now welcomes staff and students of all faiths and beliefs.

Our vision is to establish King’s as an outstanding institution in science and technology, competitive with the world’s best, by broadening the range of our disciplines and maintaining their quality.
