The President & Rector of Imperial College is the highest academic official of Imperial College London.[1] 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 Keith O'Nions after the resignation of Roy Anderson in November 2009.

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] Keith O'Nions now serves as President & Rector, while James Stirling will become 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.
