The President of Imperial College London is the highest academic official of Imperial College London.[1] The President, formerly known as the Rector, is the chief executive, elected by the Council of the college and Chairman of the Senate.[2] The position is currently held by Alice Gast, who succeed Keith O'Nions in August 2014.

In 2012 the responsibilities were separated into two posts, the President & Rector whose duty is to "promote Imperial's position as a global university" and Provost who will "be responsible for advancing and delivering the College's core academic mission - education, research and translation."[3] Alice Gast now serves as President & Rector, while James Stirling became the first Provost of Imperial College London in August 2013.[4]

The Rector's residence is a large house on Queen's Gate, at the southwest corner of the college's campus in South Kensington, London.
