Imperial College London

About Imperial College London

Imperial College London is based in Kensington, right in the heart of the UK’s capital. Imperial College was established by royal charter, meaning it was requested by the monarch. It was founded in 1907 by King Edward VII, and has gone on to become a centre of innovation dedicated to business, technology, and medicine. 

An impressive university, it has produced many alumni, including Queen’s Brian May, science fiction author H G Wells, and the inventor of penicillin, Alexander Fleming.

Accommodation details

All rooms on campus at Imperial College London are single ensuite rooms.

Safety and security on campus

In the college students are overseen by the Programme Director, who implements the day-to-day running of the programme. The Director is assisted by a team of Counsellors who very often are current members of the University of Oxford or University of Cambridge.

The Counsellors ensure that students are looked after pastorally, culturally and socially during their programme. Students are able to talk informally and frankly to the Counsellors in order to raise concerns or to discuss university applications.

Each campus has a few members of residential staff who live in the college throughout the programme and are able to assist students at any time of the day or night.
