London’s most central university, with four river-side campuses in a single square mile in the heart of London. The campuses are located either side of the Thames – Strand, Waterloo, Guy’s and further south, Denmark Hill. The college is associated with four great hospitals of Guy's and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and the Maudsley. 

The Faculty's London-based departments are at the Strand and Waterloo campuses. Most buildings at the Strand Campus overlook the Thames, midway between the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, next door to Somerset House and the Courtauld Institute of Art, close to the Royal Courts of Justice. Within five minutes' walk of the Strand are Covent Garden, many West End theatres, and Trafalgar Square, home to the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.

The Waterloo Campus is next to London's South Bank arts and cultural quarter which includes the National Film Theatre and BFI Southbank, the Royal Festival Hall, the Hayward Gallery and the National Theatre. Three minutes walk away is Waterloo Station.
