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. Kingston’s location offers the peace and security of living outside the London city center as well as attractive green areas and easy access to the beautiful countryside.

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.

Adventures abroad

Lincoln University student

"My study abroad was incredible. The time I spent in London was packed with historical knowledge and content, as well as modern day world view that is unparalleled. The academic aspect is also very intricate and was everything one would expect from a British school. I was incredibly satisfied and wish I could go again."
