Investing in your future

We want to help you reach your full potential and to achieve this you'll need world class facilities.

That's why we're investing £118.7 million in our campuses to create the perfect study environment for you, including our landmark Town House building and our major renovation project at Kingston School of Art.

The facilities you need to succeed

Campus life is all about convenience, community and ensuring you have the facilities you need to succeed in your studies.

Building a sustainable future

Climate change, energy supply and affordability, biodiversity, and reduction in global resources will impact on everyone's future. With your help, we'll continue to stand up and make a difference.

Our targets

Urgent action is needed if the world is going to address the climate emergency. That's why it's important to us to set ourselves ambitious targets. By 2030/2031, we've made a commitment to reduce our CO2 emissions by 65%.

We're on track to surpass this figure, having already achieved a 60.33% reduction. Kingston University has a zero waste to landfill policy in place and we're working to continuously prevent and reduce waste production in all areas of the University.

We're working towards achieving the Fairtrade University award by 2022. Our Fairtrade Award Team will focus on embedding Fairtrade within our curriculum, procurement, research, and campaigns to meet 11 mandatory criteria set by the Fairtrade Foundation.

Degree apprenticeships

Our apprenticeships focus on work-integrated learning, developing professional knowledge and skills that you and your employer need, now and in the future.

You'll have the opportunity to obtain a recognised degree from Kingston University while you continue to gain practical experience in your workplace, allowing you to earn while you learn. 

The cost of an apprenticeship is covered by your employer, this means you won't pay any tuition fees.

What's more, you'll get all the support you need and benefit from the expert teaching at Kingston, alongside your paid work, giving you the best of both worlds.

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.
