Meeting the COVID-19 challenge together

In 2020 we remained strong by staying apart, but at Kingston we know we are stronger together. From donating PPE to the frontline to our academics carrying out vital research, the Kingston community pulled together to help in the fight against COVID-19.

From research to business and community support, Kingston University staff and students are making vital contributions to the fight against COVID-19 – advancing knowledge in areas including health and social care, social and economic regeneration as well as exploring the impact of the virus on our behaviours, wellbeing and creativity.

We'll keep you updated

While we don't know yet how the situation will develop between now and autumn 2022, we will continue to put our community's safety and wellbeing first.
