The RCSA is open to all Imperial alumni who are graduates of the Royal College of Science or Faculty of Natural Sciences and provides a way for RCS members to stay in touch.

The RCSA was set up in 1908 for all students of the Departments of Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics (collectively termed the Royal College of Science). The first President was the author H.G Wells, whose books include The Time Machine and War of the Worlds.

Members of the RCSA receive mailings approximately three times a year, with news and events listings including an Annual Dinner and AGM. Members can also take advantage of the various benefits that the Association has negotiated, including entry into the New Cavendish Club, discounted membership of the Royal Overseas League and a discount on New Scientist subscriptions.
