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.

We are delighted that choral services have resumed, and we are once again welcoming back King's members, members of the wider University and the general public to our services albeit in a limited capacity.  We are operating a booking system whilst guest numbers are limited.
