Program Overview

Kingston University (KU) is housed on four separate campuses close to the center of the Royal Borough of Kingston in Greater London. All campuses are within easy reach of one another and are connected by a regular free bus service. The main campus on Penrhyn Road is a 25 minute train ride from the center of London with convenient connections to the rest of the United Kingdom and Europe.

The proximity of London as well as the easy accessibility of Kew Gardens, Wimbledon, Hampton Court Palace, Richmond Park, and Windsor makes Kingston an excellent place to live and study.

Student Life & Housing

Student Life

The price of the summer program includes a one-month travelcard allowing unlimited travel on public transport in Greater London (trains, buses and underground). Students are encouraged to explore the city. The Orientation Program and Welcome Reception will give you the chance to meet your fellow students and the Summer School staff. We also arrange a number of evening socials during the program and optional trips.

British Culture Field Trips

If you are not taking the British Culture class, you still have the opportunity to participate in the field trips, paying a fee per trip.

Free weekends

There will be two long weekends (four-days) during the Summer School, giving you the chance to travel to mainland Europe, Ireland or elsewhere in the UK.

The other two weekends provide free time for exploring London and the area closer to Kingston. There is also an optional one-day trip to Brighton on Saturday 16 July. Learn more here.


Summer School students stay in Kingston University’s Seeting Wells hall of residence on a room-only basis. Each student will have a single study bedroom with private shower and toilet. The program does not offer a meal plan, but you will have access to a shared kitchen so you can prepare your own meals. Learning the British way of shopping and cooking are all part of the cultural benefits of studying at Kingston University for a summer session. Learn more about the accommodations here.

Alumni experiences

Adventures abroad

Barry University student

"The CCIS Kingston University program had ultimately changed my life through education and new everlasting friendships. It was a fantastic way to travel abroad for the first time. I truly recommend this program to anyone."

Truman State University student

"Kingston Summer School was an amazing experience. I met a ton of people from all over, and made some very strong friendships. I learned a lot about myself on this program, and definitely grew as an independent person. I was able to see parts of the world that I have always dreamed of seeing, and every single day was a new adventure holding new opportunities. I wouldn't change my experience for anything."
