Resources and facilities

We continually invest in building and development programmes at Kingston University.

For example:

  • We are about to begin construction on a new landmark building for the Penrhyn Road campus, facilities to include a learning resources centre, a covered courtyard, cafes and a new landscaping scheme.
  • A new £30 million teaching building for the Kingston Hill campus opened in May 2012.
  • Also at Kingston Hill, a new multi-purpose sports hall is planned for 2017.
  • Knights Park has a brand-new learning resources centre, a new reception gallery with art shop and social space, new interdisciplinary learning zone and refurbished studio space – part of an £11million improvement programme.
  • The facilities at Roehampton Vale were improved in 2010, with the installation of a 190-person lecture theatre; a 60-person computer room; and shower facilities for cyclists.
