Kingston University London

Across our four campuses in Kingston, we offer cutting-edge facilities within a bustling and vibrant town, with great shopping, restaurants, bars and leisure facilities, and great transport links in and out of London.

Our award-winning Town House building at our Penrhyn Road site features an academic library, archive, dance studios and a studio theatre, with a rooftop garden offering stunning views across Kingston and the River Thames.

Our Town House Strategy is delivering a progressive new model of higher education founded on our sector-leading Future Skills campaign. Called the Town House Strategy after our internationally acclaimed, award-winning Town House building, the strategy will prepare students for the future world of work. It will also increase the University’s research and knowledge exchange, enhance our collaboration with local communities, business and industry, strengthen our impact on policy and support the goal of building a more sustainable society and economy.

Kingston University is built upon the achievements of its students and staff and their contributions to a wide range of initiatives including advancements in technology, commitment to sustainability and focus on Equality Diversity and Inclusion strategies.

Our values serve as guiding principles that define the University's character. They are an integral part of our Town House Strategy, establishing a common sense of purpose and direction.

We are proud to be:

  • Inclusive: to value the diversity of students and staff, treating them respectfully.
  • Innovative: to apply new methods or ideas to facilitate progress.
  • Ambitious: to pursue excellence for oneself, the university and our communities.
  • Enterprising: to recognise and act on opportunities.

In addition, we know our greatest strength is our people, so we have a range of benefits to enhance employees' careers with us which include generous holiday entitlement and pension schemes, discounted courses across the university, Employee Assistance Programme and much more.
