About the campus

South Kensington is our main campus and it is here that most undergraduate and postgraduate activity takes place. It's a compact site in the heart of 'Albertopolis' and is home to a huge range of architectural styles from the Edwardian Royal School of Mines building to the ultra-modern Norman Foster-designed Business School. There's plenty of green space too, including a beautiful landscaped square, with our famous Queen's Tower at one end.

Facilities on site include a campus library, sports facilities, Imperial College Union, Student Hub (one-stop-shop for all key student services), catering outlets, health and dental surgery, disability advisory service and Early Years Education Centre.
