The clubs include athletics, basketball, cricket, football, Kung Fu, netball, rugby, tennis, triathlon, and Frisbee. In addition, a Fitness Centre is located on the Waterloo Campus. KCLSU is also responsible for two bars and a boutique. Between 1992 and 2013, it operated a nightclub called Tutu’s.

Along with these services, the union owns a tabloid newspaper, Roar! News, which is read by tens of thousands of people per month. Also, The KCLSU Student Media won the Student Media of the Year in 2014.

KCL’s libraries are spread across its campuses. The collection comprehends more than one million printed books and thousands of journals and electronic resources. King’s College also runs two museums: Gordon Museums of Pathology and the Museum of Life Sciences.

In 2013/14, King’s College London received the seventh-highest total income of any other British university, and it mostly came from donations directed to research.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), King’s research was given a GPA of 3.23. Based on this data, KCL was ranked at #6 for its research power, and at #7 for its GPA.

King's College's research in the Medical field is outstanding, for which it claims to be the largest medical center in Europe. With its four main teaching hospitals and 17 associated general hospitals, King’s College was one of the founders of the King’s Health Partners, one of the largest academic health sciences centers in Europe. KCL is also part of two of the twelve biomedical research centers established by the NHS in England.
