About our modern teaching environment

Students on this programme benefit from a wide range of facilities across the University. Given the integrated nature of this course, you might attend lectures, workshops and other sessions at different campuses. Some modules involve attending events and seminars outside the University.

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.

Kingston Business School

Kingston Hill campusThe £26million Kingston Business School building, opened in 2012, stands at the heart of Kingston Hill campus. It provides teaching and social space, together with the Business School's academics, tutors, support staff and student facilities. It benefits from a bright, airy atrium with a cafe, sofas and laptop bars for informal learning.

The facilities available at Kingston Business School not only make studying a pleasant experience, but also give you the hands-on experience that counts in the workplace.

Knights Park campus

The Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture has outstanding facilities that help you bring your ideas to life, such as:

  • a 3D materials workshop;
  • a state-of-the art filming, editing and animation suite;
  • digital media workshops;
  • a photography suite, including digital darkrooms;
  • a printmaking room; and
  • ArchiLab, a brand new state-of-the-art teaching, research and consultancy facility.

Each subject has its own designated teaching areas, but the small campus size means there are plenty of opportunities to socialise. The creative atmosphere at Knights Park is obvious as soon as you step through the door and see the exhibits of student work. Students also benefit from:

  • the University's Stanley Picker Gallery (on a small island in the Hogsmill River); and
  • the Dame Elizabeth Esteve-Coll Centre (the learning resources centre) – with a wide range of electronic resources, including image databases and a large slide collection.

Knights Park has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Home to Kingston's design students, it backs onto the Hogsmill River so students can enjoy riverside living.

  • The student restaurant, bar and social space open on to the waterside.
  • Middle Mill halls of residence is on the other riverbank.
  • Its small size and quiet location makes the campus more intimate than the larger sites.

In recent years we have invested millions of pounds in developing the campus. This includes:

  • a graduate and research centre;
  • upgraded workshops and studios;
  • improved access for students with disabilities;
  • a reception gallery and social space; and
  • an £11m learning resources centre (LRC).
