Canvas is Kingston University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) used by staff and students to support your modules and courses. The Kingston University app will prompt you to download the Canvas app if it is not already installed on your mobile device.

When the app is installed on your device, in the 'Find your school or district' text box, enter 'Kingston University'. Select the 'Kingston University' link that appears and type in your Kingston University username and password into the login box.


Outlook is a safe and secure private email system for students and staff. It is an important tool for communicating with everyone: lecturers, students, faculty staff and peers. Make sure you check your emails regularly. 


Kingston University provides you with Box cloud storage, an unlimited secure file storage, sharing and collaboration service that can be used on any device from anywhere. Box is similar to other cloud storage services such as OneDrive, Dropbox and iCloud but has been designed to work with Kingston University's IT systems.


The SEAtS App allows you to check in to all your scheduled classes or you can check in by tapping your card onto a reader located in most rooms.

If you need help and advice on any of Kingston University's IT systems please contact the IT Service Desk.
