Law PhD (Doctor of Philosophy): Facilities

About our modern teaching environment

The facilities available in the Department of Law not only make studying a pleasant experience, but also give you the hands-on experience that counts in the workplace.

Kingston Hill campus

Kingston Hill is a leafy, hillside campus situated about three miles away from Kingston town centre. It is a quiet, secure place to study with easy access to London, meaning it provides the best of all worlds for our students.

Department of Law

The Department of Law is based in the recently refurbished, historical Kenry House once home to King Farouk of Egypt in the 1930s and has been delivering qualifying law courses for 50 years. It offers our law students plenty of teaching rooms and study spaces.

Learning resources centre

Nightingale Centre

The learning resources centre (named the Nightingale Centre) provides computing and study facilities, plus access to specialist business books, journals and online resources alongside specialist facilities such as a Bloomberg trading room.
