Why Study Here

We’re proud to be ranked a top 40 UK university and the top university in the UK for design and crafts, (which covers creative and cultural industries, graphic design, interior design, illustration, animation and product and furniture design). We’re also ranked the top university in London for bioscience, sport science, pharmacy, nursing and midwifery (Guardian league table 2021).

Kingston provides the ideal study location. The university is located in a student-friendly riverside town of Kingston upon Thames, that’s just 30 minutes from the centre of London.

There’s a lot happening at Kingston. Our new landmark building, Town House, located at our Penrhyn Road campus opened in January 2020 and provides outstanding study facilities for students.

The best way to get a feel for what it's like to study at Kingston University is to join us at one of our virtual Open Days. Book your place. 


With its mix of markets, museums, restaurants and excellent shopping scene, you'll find plenty to eat, see, drink and do in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

There are also plenty of bars, cafes, clubs and festivals to suit all tastes and budgets, while half an hour on the train will see you arrive in central London, where famous museums, galleries and iconic West End theatre shows await.

Halls of residence

Living in halls is a great way to get to know people as you could be sharing with other students from different backgrounds and on different courses to you. All first year undergraduate students who have firmly accepted an offer from us are guaranteed an accommodation offer. 

We have a range of accommodation available in our Halls of Residence, to take into account all tastes and budgets. 

Accommodation at Kingston


Whether you’d like to embark on a relaxing nature trail, catch a movie or pick up a bargain from a vintage store, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames has it all. Better still, Kingston’s on the doorstep of central London, so you’ll find yourself in the heart of the capital within 30 mins of hopping on a train.

Kingston has also been consistently reported as one of the safest boroughs in London (Metropolitan Police, 2020).

Clubs and societies

The Union of Kingston Students organises unmissable events and activities throughout the year, including the biggest Freshers' Fayre in the South East of England, where thousands of new students can join societies, sports and student services.

We also provide a great programme of events during the welcome week to help you settle into University life. From information about part-time jobs to sports and relaxation; we've got it all covered.

The university campuses are nice, the most popular campus get the best treatment and priority. The facilities are nice and looked after well for my course the organisation hasn’t been great but my course is a abit of a low priority to Kingston or maybe that’s just how it feels.
