Hello i am going to kingston university at knights park this September!
I don’t live in England so I did not had chance to visit the uni and therefore have zero clue about specific information.

Which halls do you guys recommend the most? I would like halls where students socialise the most and overall has great atmosphere!

Im from Spain! Omg i never actually visited kingston so really just going with my guts feeling😂 how did you find the uni though? true i heard that Clayhill and Middle mill often had some problems with heating stuff... Saw someone saying Seething Wells has fun nightlife long time ago but i am not sure anymore i think im going to choose between Kingston Bridge, seething wells or iq(?), although i am 0% certain on anything. Hbu?

If you're studying at Knights Park (Kingston School of Art) I'd go for Middle Mill Hall as it's literally 100m from the campus. I stayed there during my first year of study (2014-15) and I really enjoyed it! Although it's one of the smallest halls of residence (around 250 rooms) there's quite a strong community feel with Knights Park's Student Union Bar on your doorstep which is a great place to socialise and meet new people!
It was completely refurbished in the summer of 2014 so I basically moved into a brand new flat. It's also in the most convenient and pleasant location in my opinion ( being built on the banks of the Hogsmill river and a short walk to town). Other halls are out of the way and gloomy; Clayhill Hall is literally plotted between the railway and a cemetery, Kingston Bridge House is a refurbished office block tower and Seething Wells is an ex-mental asylum.

To anyone that is going to Kingston school of art, knights park campus. Middle Mill halls are the best out of seething wells and clayhill. It’s a 30 sec walk to uni. You have to share kitchen and bathroom but it’s so calm! Just thought I’d let you know in case anyone is in the same predicament that I was in last year when choosing accommodations.

I'm in my 2nd YR at kights park doing Architecture, its a wicked campus and you'll really love Kingston (lots of student stuff going on) I stayed at ViBe my first year and here again this year, loads of 1st years stay at ViBe as Kingston halls are really out dated and ViBe is literally 5 minutes walk to Knights park
