Support us

Today, with renewed confidence, the University of London is addressing the challenges of an ever-changing national and international landscape in higher education and responding to the shifting needs of students and researchers across the world.

The University is entering a new phase of its development and will continue to innovate and evolve towards its second centenary. In 1859, the magazine All the Year Round – edited by Charles Dickens - described the University as “The People’s University”, which would “extend her hand even to the young shoemaker who studies in his garret.”

This idea is as true today as it was almost 160 years ago. Our key aims today are to achieve academic excellence, to provide innovative and high-quality services for our students, staff and the research community, and to support a sustainable, accessible and valued estate.

It is only with the support of individuals and organisations like you that the University, our Colleges, Institutes and departments can deliver the world-class research and teaching which has characterised the University for nearly 200 years.
