Kingston University  have a total of 2,220 rooms available in our halls of residence – each of which has a different feel. Most rooms have en-suite facilities, we have a number of self-contained studios and the remainder of rooms share bathrooms with the other students in the flat.

Living in halls is a great way to get to know other people and can be great fun – you will be living with students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures on different courses in mixed-gender flats.

Their halls are linked to the main University campuses by a free intersite bus service that also serves Kingston town centre and Surbiton station. Permits for car parking are available at our hall sites (except 75 Penrhyn Road) and there are also secure cycle racks and / or sheds.

They have a range of accommodation especially for disabled students. If you would like to apply for adapted accommodation please get in touch with our disability advisers for more information.

At Kingston they guarantee an offer of accommodation for all new full-time undergraduate students and first year international postgraduate students for the September intake. Please note they we work with a number of approved private providers to ensure alternative accommodation is available, in the unlikely event that our own halls are fully occupied.

Kingston University is based in Kingston upon Thames, a vibrant area on the River Thames in south-west London, only 30 minutes away from central London. Kingston is consistently rated one of the safest London boroughs (Metropolitan Police) as well as the second happiest place to live in London (Rightmove).
