Halls of Residence at Kingston University

We have a total of 2,005 rooms available in our halls of residence each of which has a different feel. Most rooms have en-suite facilities, we have a number of self-contained studios and the remainder of rooms share bathrooms with the other students in the flat.  

Living in halls is a great way to get to know other people and can be great fun – you will be living with students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures on different courses in mixed-gender flats.

Our halls are linked to the main University campuses by a free intersite bus service that also serves Kingston town centre and Surbiton station. Permits for car parking are available at our hall sites (except 75 Penrhyn Road) and there are also secure cycle racks and / or sheds.

We have a range of accommodation especially for disabled students. If you would like to apply for adapted accommodation please get in touch with our disability advisers for more information.

At Kingston we guarantee an offer of accommodation for all new full-time undergraduate students and first year international postgraduate students for the September intake. Booking information will be available from June 2020; once you firmly accept your offer you will be sent an email with further instructions. Please note that we work with a number of approved private providers to ensure alternative accommodation is available, in the unlikely event that our own halls are fully occupied.

We offer some rooms in Seething Wells Halls of Residence as flexible accommodation. The flexi-stay plan was introduced to allow commuting students to book rooms on a casual basis if they wish to stay near the University when completing a piece of coursework, if they are worried about getting to an exam on time, or if they are struggling to get in for a 9am lecture.

Halls welcome event

Every year there are halls welcome events so that new students to halls can meet and get to know each other. Our welcome weekend for the 2020/21 Academic Year begins on Saturday 12th September.
