Our new business and law courses are based at our Kingston Hill campus. Leafy Kingston Hill is about three miles from Kingston town centre.
Once part of a country estate, you can still see some of its landscaped gardens and the large Victorian house. Throughout the years a range of modern buildings has gone up on the hillside campus so students also benefit from cutting-edge facilities including our critically-acclaimed £26million Kingston Business School building that opened recently. Kingston Hill has a good community feel thanks to its many on-site facilities, including teaching rooms; learning resources; computer labs; halls of residence; and a bar, restaurant and cafes.
The free university bus connects Kingston Hill with the other campuses, main halls of residence, town centre and railway station.
The high-tech learning resources centre (LRC) at Kingston Hill houses a wide range of resources and services. The dedicated business and law library holds major texts, periodicals, journals and computer learning packages, and remote access to the LRC databases means you can access facilities online from anywhere in the world. Known as the Nightingale Centre, after Florence Nightingale who was a regular visitor to Kingston, the LRC boasts a variety of learning spaces, with group study rooms, 638 individual study places and 229 fixed computers. A 60-seat learning cafe provides a place to study and socialise. We further improved the learning resources centre a few years ago with a £5million extension.

Our students can also use the Bloomberg trading room where you can access real-time commodity prices and market information and data. The service is one of a few of its kind in any university, and gives our students a better understanding of the world of stocks, shares and investments.
You will benefit from our fantastic new £26million Kingston Business School building, reaping the benefits of this state-of-the-art building through its dedicated suites, workspaces, social areas and inspiring atrium and cafe.
While at Kenry House students can also access an interactive legal skills suite including mooting facilities to enhance your legal training and practise mock court hearings. These buildings, at the heart of the campus, puts us at the very front with some of the best facilities for teaching in the country. Built with the ethos of enhancing the experience of our students and designed and constructed with sustainability in mind to reflect Kingston's commitment to inspiring, educating and developing students.

What I liked about the Kingston Hill campus where the Business and Law Schools are located is that there are a lot of open spaces and green areas.
The course looked like something I would enjoy throughout my years here, as it meant I could continue learning a subject I had previously enjoyed but also try something new.
