Answers to frequently asked questions

Below, you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Open Days.

Booking

How do I book my place for the Open Day?

You can book your place on this page under the heading Upcoming Virtual Open Days.

Do I have to book to attend?

Booking your Open Day place in advance is highly recommended as it will ensure a quick registration process on arrival.

Once you have booked, you will receive further information by email, including travel information and details about the programme of events.

Will I receive confirmation when I have booked my place?

Yes, you will be sent an immediate confirmation email when you book online. Please check your computer's security setting and spam/junk mail folder if you don't receive the confirmation.

Contact us if you would like your confirmation email resent, or if you think you may have entered an incorrect email address when booking your place, and we will do our best to help you.

Your visit

What time does the Open Day start and finish?

You will be emailed details of opening and closing times for each campus. The Open Day programme is emailed a few days before the date of the event which will enable you to plan your day in advance.

Do I have to attend the whole day?

No, but we do suggest that you arrive as early as possible to ensure you don't miss any talks. You can attend any part of the Open Day you wish, although we do advise you to attend your subject session and take part in as many activities as possible happening throughout the day.

Can I bring family and/or friends?

Yes, you are welcome to bring guests (parents, family and/or friends) with you to the Open Day.

How do I know which campus to visit?

Check which campus your subject session is held at. You can visit more than one campus if you like.

If you'd like to visit one of our other campuses for additional talks or tours you can use the free University campus shuttle bus to travel between campuses. Please note that entry times may vary between campuses.

Will I need to register on arrival?

When you book your place you will receive a confirmation email which you should show on arrival.

If you have not booked, don't worry; you can register on the day when you arrive.

Where can I get a programme?

You will be sent a link to the programme by email a few days before the Open Day so you can plan your day in advance. On the day, printed programmes will be available from the registration desk.

How do I travel in between campuses?

We have a free University campus shuttle bus service running between each campus throughout the day. These run approximately every 20 minutes, though times may vary due to traffic on the day.

What should I do if I go to the wrong campus?

Don't worry! Just speak to someone on the welcome desk or a student ambassador who will be able to help.

What should I wear?

There's a lot to see and do during your visit – including campus and accommodation tours – so comfy shoes (and perhaps an umbrella!) are recommended.

Is there food and drink available on the day?

Yes, we will have free tea and coffee stations at our campuses. You can also purchase food and drink from our on-site campus cafes.

Travelling and parking

How do I get to Kingston University?

View directions on how to find each campus.

Is there parking?

  • Free parking is available at Kingston Hill and Roehampton Vale campuses during University-wide Open Days, and there is a free campus shuttle bus that travels between sites.
  • There is no parking available at Kingston School of Art, Knights Park campus during Open Days.
  • Free parking is available at Penrhyn Road campus on Saturdays during Open Days, but spaces are very limited. There is no parking at Penrhyn Road campus on Wednesdays.
  • Kingston town centre can be very congested, so we recommend the use of public transport - or parking at alternative campuses and using the free campus shuttle bus.
  • Other car parks are available in the local area. 

Is disabled parking available?

Yes, parking is available for blue badge holders at all campuses.

Access requirements

Do you have disabled access?

All our venues have disabled access. Staff or student ambassadors will be available to assist on the day.

Our Kingston School of Art, Knights Park campus is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment works. This is exciting as we will have some new state-of-the-art facilities ready for when you join us, but it does mean, access to some of our studios will be restricted at our Open Day.

If you require step-free access or any assistance during your visit, please do contact us so that we can help plan your day so you get the most out of your visit. Just drop us an email at srteam@kingston.ac.uk.
