Situated on the banks of the Hogsmill River in central Kingston, Knights Park is the picturesque base for our art, design and architecture students.
Tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood, it has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Its size and location make the campus more intimate than the larger sites.
Knights Park's riverside location means the student restaurant and bar open onto the waterside. We're currently looking at how to make the environment even more open and creative – the first phase was a new reception gallery with an art shop area and social space.
The learning resources centre (LRC) opened in February 2012 and has created a brand-new interdisciplinary learning zone at the heart of the Knights Park campus. The new centre is part of an £11million improvement programme at Knights Park, which includes the refurbishment of studio space, an upgraded reception and gallery area and external landscaping.
The University's Stanley Picker Gallery is also based at the Knights Park campus.
