We look forward to welcoming you to Kingston University!
There is plenty for you to see and explore at the undergraduate Open Day. On this page, you will find information to help you plan your day. We recommend you allow three to four hours to experience everything on offer.
*Please note that due to ongoing roadworks taking place in the area we anticipate there might be delays to your journey. We encourage you to consult the Transport for London website or your maps/sat nav app to plan your journey and take into account any expected delays.*
Find out about the Kingston experience through our lively welcome talk.
If you have time, we would love to invite you to share a complimentary lunch with academics at our Roehampton Vale campus from 12.30, where you will be able to chat informally and learn more about your course.
This is where you can attend subject-specific events and learn more about your preferred course.
If you can't see your subject of interest in the list below, your course may be taught on a different campus.
Check the time of your subject talk and plan the rest of your Open Day activities around that. See below for when our campus tours and exhibitions are running.
The Student Services Exhibition is where you can pick up information about the University's main student services. This will include accommodation, admissions, careers and employability, disability and mental health, international, student funding and more.
You'll have the chance to speak to experienced staff at these stands and find out more about the University. It's a good idea to plan ahead and perhaps write down your questions in advance so you don't forget something important on the day.
A tour will be provided as part of your subject talk. The guided tour will take you around campus so you can explore the facilities at Roehampton Vale.
