Resources and facilities

We are currently investing in an ambitious and exciting building programme at Kingston University. For example:

  • we spent more than £1 million developing the Penrhyn Road campus during 2009;
  • a new £30 million teaching building for the Kingston Hill campus, opened in May 2012;
  • the first phase of the Knights Park facelift was recently unveiled – students are now enjoying a new reception gallery with art shop and social space and a new learning resources centre; and
  • 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.

You can also take advantage of on-site and local social and cultural resources.


We are expanding our library resources with more:

  • Learning resources centrebooks and publication subscriptions;
  • online database subscriptions;
  • AV and media equipment;
  • powerful computing facilities; and
  • 24 hour access (term time) to the Learning Resource Centres at Kingston Hill and Penrhyn Road
