Key dates and events

As well as being used during term time by staff and students, many people visit our campuses and Kingston each week. For example:

  • Prospective students and their families attend open days and campus tours.
  • Graduates and their family/friends attend graduation ceremonies.
  • External groups and organisations attend conferences and events.
  • Local residents take advantage of our on-campus facilities (eg the fitness centre).

All of these activities (and many more) mean the campuses and town centre can be very busy.
