KU Welcome Week

Congratulations on securing your place at Kingston University!

We are really proud to be welcoming you to Kingston. These pages contain critical information that you will need for your first week, so please ensure you take the time to look through it all. 

KU Welcome Week: Monday 18 – Friday 22 September 2017

Attendance during your first week at university is compulsory.  For most students your first week is KU Welcome Week (18-22 September) however for some students on particular courses we realise your first week may be a little earlier.

KU Welcome Week includes a series of important interactive talks and information sessions providing you with all the essentials that you need in the next part of your exciting journey with us. The week will help you settle in, meet new people and get to know your course and the support services available to you.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kingston University and supporting you on your journey.

Best wishes,Dr Clarissa Wilks
