Students with practical questions about living and studying at King's are advised to consult the current King's undergraduate information booklet and the University handbook in particular.

Undergraduate Admissions Office contact details

Please continue to write your name, subject (including 'Biological' or 'Physical' for Natural Sciences) and UCAS number on all correspondence with us.

For queries we prefer to be contacted by email in all cases:

Kristy and Heather also visit schools and are frequently away working with school groups from January to July. They can normally answer your emails wherever they are so it is definitely best to email rather than phone.

All documents in the offer holders' checklist should be sent to:

Undergraduate Admissions Office
King's College

Please remember to enclose a stamped, addressed postcard if you need confirmation of receipt.

It is essential that you let us know immediately if your mailing address, phone number or email address change. Please also update the information on UCAS Track.
