Student Life in Kingston
While studying is a key part of university life, they encourage their students to enjoy the fantastic activities available and to take part in the many social events. These include student clubs, societies, sports and leisure activities and students' union events. Kingston is a modern market town situated in the lovely, green county of Surrey. It is a friendly place packed with historic buildings, leisure venues and open spaces.
As a Kingston student you're just a 30-minute train ride away from the excitement and variety of London, so you can take advantage of all it offers – from arts and culture to job and career opportunities. London is home to many of the world's leading brands and organisations, especially in the business, creative and science industries so it's the perfect place to gain valuable work experience and start a successful career after university. Kingston not only boasts a beautiful riverside location and gorgeous green spaces, but there's always something on to keep you busy throughout the year, from fun get-togethers, festivals and fairs. At night Kingston transforms into a haven for party-goers, with popular bars and nightclubs. There's something for everyone, especially students.
Almost all of London’s most iconic landmarks are within a 30 minute train ride from Kingston. Each campus at Kingston University has its own unique character. Linked together by the University's free intersite bus service they combine state-of-the-art facilities with a friendly study environment. Buses also run both locally and from other parts of London. Trains run regularly from London Waterloo to Kingston station (midweek four trains per hour, journey times 28–33 minutes) or Surbiton station (midweek 10 trains per hour, journey times 15–32 minutes) for Penrhyn Road and Knights Park campus sites.
