We have reintroduced Alumni+ library cards, a physical card alumni can apply for to access our libraries. If you wish to borrow books from King’s libraries, please fill out the new Alumni+ membership form.
You will have the option to choose between two discounted (50%) subscription options:
£30 for six months
£60 for one year
Alumni+ users will be provided with an ID card for swipe access outside of staffed hours (subject to library opening times). You can take out up to five books in one go but you’re only allowed to have a total of five books borrowed on your account.
Please always bring your Alumni+ card and a form of ID with you if you would like to visit our libraries outside library staffed hours or borrow books.
If you forget your card, you can still visit the libraries by showing your King’s Connect account to security. Note that in this case, you are limited to just browsing (not borrowing) the collection and can only visit during library staffed hours.
For more information, visit the library webpages.
At King’s, we value our alumni and are fortunate to have alumni volunteers who are committed to supporting our efforts in making the world a better place through service. Alumni volunteers can now receive digital credentials to recognise their volunteering commitments and efforts.
Digital credentials are made up of a digital certificate and a digital badge which can be shared on LinkedIn with your wider network and prospective employers.
We have four different types of volunteer recognition:
• International Alumni Representative
• Alumni Volunteer
• Alumni Mentor
• Mentee (for students only)
Whether you are supporting King’s students through a mentoring programme, speaking on a careers panel or helping at our events, digital credentials can be a powerful tool to showcase your volunteering achievement. Not only can you sync your credentials to your LinkedIn profile, but you also have the flexibility to share your digital badge on your social media channels and add it to your email signature. All issued digital credentials are verified, enhancing the credibility of your volunteering achievements if you choose to share this with your wider network on LinkedIn.
For more information, visit our webpage.

The AKC is at the heart of the King’s commitment to an international, interdisciplinary and innovative curriculum: it seeks to foster an understanding of different beliefs and cultures that can be taken into wider society. The programme is unique to King’s, and is the only course open to all King’s students, as well as to staff and alumni. The AKC programme offers two series of academic lectures each year, on every campus. It is normally a three-year programme, designed to run alongside students’ main programme of study.
We are delighted to announce that the AKC is now being launched as a Distance Learning Programme available to King’s alumni.
The AKC is the original university award and has been taught since 1829. It has recently been expanded to include modules in Philosophy of Religion, and Ethics. Alumni who successfully complete three years of the AKC programme (the same regulations as for campus-based students) are eligible for election by the Academic Board, on behalf of the College Council, as Associates of King’s College London.

Chatham House is an independent policy institute and a trusted forum for debate and dialogue. For 100 years, its research and ideas have helped people, societies and governments understand and adapt to our changing world.
Chatham House has provided thought leadership on key issues that defined the 20th century. It helped craft the multilateral institutions and mechanisms of global financial stability after the Second World War and gave African independence leaders a platform throughout decolonisation. Its research influenced China’s establishment of low-carbon economic zones, and the Chatham House Rule has helped foster open dialogue and ideas-sharing.
Today, at the beginning of its second century, Chatham House continues to offer solutions to global challenges and actively seeks to empower the next generation to change their world.
Chatham House’s three second century goals are intended to enable and build peaceful, sustainable and inclusive societies. It is privileged to hold a long-standing position of trust on the world stage and seeks to use this to champion positive change for people everywhere.
Add your voice to the debate by attending member events in London and online, with high-profile speakers such as Nancy Pelosi, Michel Barnier, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Sir Tony Blair.
Your membership helps ensure Chatham House’s independence. Challenge its speakers in an atmosphere of informed, respectful debate and ensure its work is rigorously tested.
Expand your network by meeting other members from business, government, NGOs and academia at events and through social media.
Browse a unique collection at Chatham House, discover a world of knowledge through its eLibrary, and enjoy six print editions of The World Today magazine and access to its International Affairs journal.
