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 the Central 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.
Information about the accessibility of the South Kensington Campus is available online through the DisabledGo access guides
