About Institution

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.
