About City


The following key documents set out City's constitution and decision-making structure of City.


City, University of London is an independent corporation, whose legal status derives from a Royal Charter originally granted in 1966. As a consequence of the reform of governance at City, a Supplemental Charter and Statutes was approved by Privy Council in March 2006. The Supplemental Charter and Statutes revoked most of the 1966 Charter. As a consequence of acceding to the University of London on 1st September 2016, a further Supplemental Charter was approved by the Privy Council in July 2016 and set out the new objects, powers and framework of governance for City, University of London.
