Kingston University's location

If you're looking for the bustle of city life without the hustle, beautiful Kingston upon Thames is the place for you. On the doorstep of the capital, Kingston is one of London's safest boroughs and offers all the highlights of city living in a leafy, riverside location.

The University's four campuses can be found in and around the town centre, with a free intersite bus connecting them. It's a lively, student-friendly location on the Thames, neighbouring historic Hampton Court Palace and two royal parks. Better still, the heart of the capital is just 30 minutes away by train.

As well as being a fantastic place to make your home, Kingston's excellent transport links make commuting simple from further afield too. With two mainline train stations, a network of bus routes, and major motorways close by, there are so many ways to reach Kingston from London and the rest of the country. And if you're travelling by air, both Gatwick and Heathrow international airports are easily accessible from Kingston by both road and public transport.

Other University locations

I knew I wanted to live at home when studying at university and I've found Kingston is a great place to do this as many students here do the same. It takes 45 minutes door-to-door to get to my lectures and my journey takes me through Richmond Park where I get to walk alongside grazing deer. I can then pick up the free University bus from Kingston town centre that takes me directly to my lectures.
