Penrhyn Road is central to Kingston town centre and easily accessible by public transport.

Kingston University is within the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). For more information, please see the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames website.


Trains run regularly from London Waterloo to Surbiton station (midweek 10 trains per hour, journey times 15-32 minutes) and Kingston station (midweek four trains per hour, journey times 28-33 minutes). Both Surbiton and Kingston are in Travelcard Zone 6.

The 71, 281, K2 and K3 buses all run along Penrhyn Road and there are stops directly outside the main entrance. For further information, visit the Transport for London (TfL) website.

London buses do not accept cash, but you can pay using an Oyster travelcard or with a contactless credit card. More information on fares and payments can be found on the TfL buses website.

We also run a free intersite bus service for students, staff and visitors - KU1, KU2 and KU3. These buses stop outside the campus and link it to Kingston and Surbiton mainline stations, other campuses and halls of residence.


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.

Members of the public can pay to use the onsite parking outside core working hours on a first-come, first-served basis. Physical pay-to-park facilities are installed at Penrhyn Road together with a pay-by-phone system known as 'Parkonomy'. Alternative parking in Kingston Town Centre can be found on the Parkopedia website - which shows current availability and costs.

All car park users agree to the University car parking terms and conditions.


Cycle parking facilities and showers are available at this site. For further information on cycle routes around the University, visit the Cycle Kingston website.


Heathrow and Gatwick airports international airports are the closest to Kingston. Coaches, buses and trains link the airports to the town.
