Heythrop College is the specialist philosophy and theology constituent college of the University of London situated in Kensington Square, Kensington, London. It offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in philosophy, theology and psychology, as well as research in related fields.

It was founded in 1614 by the Jesuits in Leuven, Belgium, then moved in 1624 to Liège. During the wars surrounding the French Revolution, the college moved to Britain - philosophy was taught at Stonyhurst College in Lancashire and theology in St. Beuno's in North Wales.

In 1926, the colleges came together in Heythrop Hall, Oxfordshire, then moved to London in 1970. It became a college of the University in 1971, and moved to its current Kensington location in 1993.

The college library houses an enormous collection of early theological texts, also held off site. The college also runs the Heythrop Journal and hosts a Centre for Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue.
