Welcome to Kingston University!

We can't wait for you to join us this September at Kingston University!

Whether you plan on commuting to uni or living on campus and making Kingston upon Thames your new home away from home, we can't wait to welcome you to this stunning riverside town. Kingston is a buzzing, student-friendly town situated right on the River Thames, neighbouring historic Hampton Court Palace, two royal parks and loaded with shops, bars and restaurants to suit your every need. Get ready to spend your days studying on the doorstep of the capital, in one of London's safest boroughs, offering all the perks of city living in a leafy, riverside location.

If you are planning to commute to us, looking to take on a work placement in the capital or simply fancy an evening out in London, Kingston is just 30 minutes away from the heart of the capital by train (there is also a network of bus routes to get you wherever you need to go).

We will continue to update this page with all the relevant information you need to start your course, so be sure to bookmark this page and continue to check back throughout the coming months.

Enrolment hotline

If you have any questions regarding our course offering, student life, support or more, please contact our enrolment hotline, which is open weekdays 09:00–17:00.

Welcome Week

For most students, Welcome Week will take place between Monday 19 and Friday 23 September*.

Welcome Week is just the start of getting you settled into Kingston University. When you join us there will be activities to help you settle into life as a Kingston student, meet new friends and get ready for your studies.

During Welcome Week you will be introduced to your course and Faculty, some of the support services available to you and we'll provide you with the practical information you need to know before you begin your studies.

Plan your Welcome Week

*Please also note: some courses start before 19 September; in this case you will be (or already have been) contacted directly by your faculty.
