Situated in central Kingston, yet tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood on the banks of the Hogsmill River, the picturesque Knights Park campus has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Its size and location make it more intimate than the larger sites, with Kingston School of Art providing a creative and artistic feel.
The hub of the campus and home of Kingston School of Art is the Mill Street Building, which recently underwent a major refurbishment. Stirling Prize-winning architects, Haworth Tompkins, identified the best characteristics of the existing site while transforming the interior. They created more light and made better use of the space so that students on courses with natural symbiosis can collaborate more easily. It now houses new workshops and studios, packed with first-class facilities where the next generation of designers, architects, journalists and photographers hone their craft.
The University's Stanley Picker Gallery is also based at Knights Park. The gallery has a broad programme of exhibitions and events by artists, designers and Kingston students.
