About: Kings College London was founded in 1829 by King George IV and the Prime Minister- the Duke of Wellington. Originally the institution was only available to members of the Church of England. Famous students at Kings College include John Keats and Florence Nightingale. In 1829 the Earl of Winchilsea questioned the Duke of Wellingtons support of Kings College alongside his support of Catholic and Anglican institutions- this resulted in a pistol duel on Battersea fields, though nobody was hurt. In 1839 the Kings College Hospital was founded, to the North of the Strand on Portugal Street. In 1910 the Kings College for Women was officially recognised. The Royal Dental Hospital of London can be found within the Kings College campus and is recognised as one of the pioneering forces in dental medicine. Kings College London is located across many sites- the majority of which are situated near the Thames near London's West End.

24 hour service in London
Wills Library, part of King’s College, is a quiet study space with PCs and free wifi. It’s perfectly suited to people who want to work somewhere in silence through the night on a laptop, without having to order coffee. A bit like the British Library, you can’t just drop in – you need to apply first by telling them what sort of research you’re doing.
