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.
