King's College London

Student review
By CiaranAndrew

10/10. The uni is incredible. It is in the heart of London but the small little communities within the accommodation blocks helps to stop you from feeling swamped by the big city and the quality of the lectures is 1st class... We are actually lectured by the people who write our textbooks!!

Travel Information


The tube is the quickest and easiest way of travelling round London. The tube usually closes between 00.00 and 01.00, earlier on Sundays. Bus routes cover the entire city and are cheaper than the tube. Many buses run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Use journey planner to find your night bus home. The smartest way to travel around London for your first week at King's is with a one week travelcard for the central zones 1 and 2 (out of 6), available from any tube station. All of King's residences and campuses are in zones 1 and 2.

Once you have enrolled at King's, you can apply for a Student Oyster card, which gives you a 30 per cent discount on travel. Oyster is the reusable travel smartcard for London. It can be used as a travelcard or for pay as you go or a combination of both.
