This October Kingston University staff and students will be heading into Kingston town centre to highlight the key role the University plays within the local community. Our Civic Showcase will take place at the Guildhall on Kingston's High Street. The event is open to the whole community and will celebrate the local and regional impact of our students and staff.

Alongside a short talks programme, those attending will also be able to visit our exhibition area, enjoy live music and dance performances and get involved in activities which demonstrate the exciting opportunities the University brings to residents and businesses.
