Where you live plays a big part in your experience of university, and at Kingston we want to help you find the right place.
Whether you're applying for a place in university halls or want to live independently, the University's Accommodation Team in the Student Life Centre is available to help both before and after you arrive here. We also have plenty of advice if you'd rather commute from your current home.
- What's it like living in a halls of residence?
If you live in a hall of residence at Kingston, you'll have a single room in a flat shared with other students. You'll share the kitchen with between two and nine other students. Read more.
- What if I don't get a place in halls or want to live privately?
Living independently gives you lots of flexibility. You can choose your own flatmates for example and decide whether you'd rather live near your campus of elsewhere in the town. Read more.

Yes, lots of our students commute from outside Kingston. Our excellent transport links mean it's easy to get here from other parts of London and Surrey.
