Penrhyn Road campus (KT1 2EE)

Close to Kingston town centre, this lively campus has a buzz day and night and is the main hub of student activity. It is the base for the Union of Kingston Students and the fitness and health centres, so students from all campuses use this site from time to time.

The Penrhyn Road campus has grown around the four-storey main building, a hub for university activity as it houses the student restaurant and library, as well as lots of teaching rooms. We've invested heavily in learning facilities at Penrhyn Road, including the £20million John Galsworthy building. We've also invested almost £15million on:

  • science laboratories;
  • specialist facilities for subjects such as anatomy, psychology and radiology;
  • open access computing suites and library facilities;
  • informal learning areas where you can grab a coffee, socialise and unwind;
  • improved access for students with disabilities; and
  • a refurbished and expanded learning resources centre.

The University is developing a new Town House at Penrhyn Road, due to open in 2019. Facilities will include a learning resources centre, a covered courtyard, cafés and a welcoming and attractive new landscaping scheme across the front of the campus. We began construction in April 2017 and the new building and landscaping will be ready for when students start in 2019.
