The Union Shop, our only source of King's branded merchandise, is set to open in Bush House Arcade at Strand Campus on Monday 18 September 2017. The shop, which is run by our Students' Union, is where we get our branded clothing, gifts, accessories and stationery. The new shop has added new products such as specialty international dry foods, as well as a chiller where we can access snacks and refreshment on the go. We will also have access to a broader range of stationery at very student friendly prices, as well as a changing room which wasn't possible in the old shop.

The Union Shop is a rebranded version of King's College London Shop which closed its doors at 171 Strand at the end of August. The new shop is only a minute's walk away and can be accessed using the signal crossing directly in front of the old shop location (see map below). After making it across the road, simply walk a few yards to the left and the shop will be found on your right at the entrance to the Bush House Arcade.

The shop is the first KCLSU space to move into the new Bush House buildings which are being developed by the University as part of an expanded Strand Campus. Other KCLSU spaces are set to open in Term 3, including KCLSU Hubs, KCLSU Advice, a bar and restaurant called The Vault, an alcohol free cafe called The Shack, a bookable cinema, performance and games area, activity and meetings rooms, as well as lots of common spaces.

1:34pm on 8 Sep 17 Hi Mary, we're so happy you like it! The Union Shop opens on Monday, 18 September and that's also when the items will be available online. I'm afraid we can't take payment before that. Sorry!
