Kingston Hill is a beautiful, leafy, self-contained site with a mix of modern and historic buildings and a community feel. The campus boasts a cafe, restaurant and bar as well as halls of residence, tennis courts, table-tennis tables and an outdoor fitness trail. The learning resources centre includes a cafe, group learning rooms and bookable meeting pods.
Kingston Business School has a modern, purpose-built building, with some of the best facilities for business-based courses in the country, including a new business incubation space, Kingston Business Innovation Centre. We are also one of only a few universities in the UK to have a real-time Bloomberg trading room.
The Frank Lampl building also has a wide range of practical facilities, simulations suites, lecture theatres and teaching spaces for health and social care students.
The campus is also home to the Visconti studio (created with legendary record producer Tony Visconti), a large performance studio, five recording studios and two Mac labs.
Students based here: business; education; health; music; and social care.
Located just outside the town centre, Kingston Hill can be reached easily by public transport.

We strongly recommend visitors use the excellent public transport links instead of driving. The University has limited on-site parking facilities and prioritises staff during core working hours (Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 4.30pm). Limited visitor parking is available but must be pre-booked through the person you are visiting, as parking enforcement measures are in operation at all sites. Free car parking is available on all sites for blue badge holders and there are docking bays for electric cars.
All car park users agree to the University car parking terms and conditions.
Please visit the undergraduate Open Days page for further information.
Kingston University provides a supportive, accessible and empowering environment for all students, staff and visitors. The campus is situated on a hill and has three levels. There are a combination of both internal and external lifts and ramps that allow access to areas on the site. There are accessible parking spaces for Blue Badge holders on all three levels on the campus.
You can see detailed accessibility guides for all our sites on the AccessAble website (external link).
