Welcome to King's College

One of the 31 constituent Colleges that make up the University of Cambridge, King's College was founded by King Henry VI in 1441 and has continuously striven to uphold Henry’s love for ‘education, religion, learning and research’. Whether you are browsing this site as a potential student applicant, visitor or member, we hope that these pages will inform you and draw you closer into the life of this cherished place.

National restrictions mean that sadly the Chapel is currently closed to external visitors, and will likely be closed at least until Easter. We will make further information available in due course, and hope to welcome you later in the year.
