The university is a community of nearly 23,000 students and has five campuses which have received £60 million in investments over recent years with more than £100 million still to come. Areas to have benefitted from the investment include the Audio Visual Theatre, refurbished cafés, libraries and teaching spaces, plus a New Education Hub. KCL is widely known for its part in education for healthcare and is home to a Drug Control Centre, Dental Institute and The Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery among other teaching establishments and hospital partnerships.

Current projects in this area include working with young people, raising awareness of certain issues by visiting schools and the community plus mentoring programmes. The Students' Union has three venues; TUTU's Club which has hosted acts such as LMFAO, Taylor Swift and B.o.B. Guy's Bar serving food, drink and offering great nights out and The Waterfront bar which overlooks the Thames and serves food and drinks throughout the day while big-screen sports play in the background and DJs and quizzes take place in the evenings. There are more than 300 jobs on offer at university campus venues for those who want to earn extra money.
