Penrhyn Road is central to Kingston town centre and easily accessible by public transport.
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.
For further information, visit the National Rail Enquiries website.
The 71, 281, K2 and K3 buses all run along Penryhn Road and there are stops directly outside the main entrance. For further information, visit the Transport for London (TfL) website.
London buses no longer 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 - which stops outside and links the campus with 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 of 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 also 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.
Please visit the undergraduate Open Days page for further information.
Cycle parking facilities and showers are available at this site. Kingston University also has a fleet of electric, power-assisted bikes for hire to travel between the Penryhn Road and Kingston Hill campuses. Rates start at £1 a day, with membership options available for staff and students.
