We know that coming to university can be a big step – whether it's for the first time or you're returning to study – so we do everything we can to support you. And don't forget that the Union of Kingston Students is there to help you out too, whether you want to find a place to play football or need advice about an academic problem.
This short film made by Kingston students features a list of important things we wish we'd known before ever setting foot in a hall of residence or lecture theatre:
Check out some of the campus improvements we've been making ready for your arrival:
Our Sport and Active Lifestyles service provides a range of facilities, including grass pitches, tennis/netball courts, a 65-station gym and a sports pavilion, plus a Sports Performance Programme and volunteering programme to help talented athletes. The University's Fitness Centre also offers a range of aerobic and dance classes.
The Penrhyn Road campus is such a good place to study. It's the home of so many different courses that its students are really diverse. The library now has a cafe which makes it a more sociable place to be.
The atmosphere at the Kingston Hill campus is infectious – the peaceful areas make for a relaxed learning experience and you often find that students from other campuses enjoy spending time here.
The Roehampton Vale campus is located next to Wimbledon Common which is great for escaping everyday life. The building has many lecture theatres, classrooms and huge technical laboratories, including a fully working Learjet passenger jet.
The Knights Park campus is like one big creative platform. It's a fantastic environment to grow and work in. It's a serene campus next to a quaint little river, hidden from distractions. The calm atmosphere makes studying here a joy.
