Campus and facilities

The University is located across four teaching campuses, in and around Kingston upon Thames. The student-friendly riverside town neighbouring Hampton Court Palace and two royal parks is perfect for long walks, deer watching, and quiet study time. Better still, Kingston’s on the doorstep of central London, so you’ll find yourself at the heart of the capital after just a short train ride.

Whether it's Kingston Hill's woodland trail or the riverside at Knights Park, each of our campuses offer something special. You'll have access to all the amenities that make day-to-day life that much easier at your fingertips – from bars, restaurants and coffee shops to laundrettes and even an on-site gym.

Our RIBA award-winning building, Town House, located at our Penrhyn Road campus provides outstanding study facilities for students, including a new library with over 1,000 study spaces, flexible learning areas, a covered courtyard, cafes, dance studios and roof top gardens.
