Welcome to King's and our Union

By Ben, Momin, Mariya, Jack & Mahamed, our Student Officer Team 

Welcome to everyone who has gained a place at King’s for September! We’re so excited to welcome you all into our Union community. As your elected Student Officers, we represent the views of students and campaign to improve the student experience at King’s, and fight for justice and student rights nationally and globally. If you’d like to know more about our campaigning priorities, please go here, or email us at

We have a range of activities and events for you to get involved in at KCLSU. We’ve nearly 270 Activity and Sports Groups, doing anything from ultimate Frisbee to cheese and wine. We put on hundreds of bespoke events each year through our KCLSU Events programme, much of which you will experience throughout Welcome Month. Our Welcome Fair will take place on the 23 - 24 September at the Barbican, and will introduce you to our societies, activity and campaigning groups, as well as other external organisations for employment and volunteering opportunities. Welcome Fair is your doorway into the University community through the Students Union, with around 10,000 people attending last year’s event.

Also, check out our specific welcome pages for postgraduates, international students and distance learners. They've been created so that you have easy access to the most relevant information and events for you.  

We can’t wait to welcome you to our community and London, with all of its exciting opportunities. We are proud to empower our students to have the best experience possible whilst on their University journey, to give them a platform to grow and to be the representative body of 27,000 King’s students.
