Discover your world at Kingston University 

  • Kingston University is based in Kingston upon Thames, a vibrant area on the River Thames in south-west London, only 25 minutes away from central London. Kingston is consistently rated the safest borough in London (Metropolitan Police, 2013) and the happiest place to live in London (Rightmove, 2013).
  • Kingston has invested almost 200 million dollars in improving facilities and resources for your studies. This includes new buildings, new laboratories and equipment.
  • The study abroad office at Kingston University is available to help with your questions or concerns. They also offer an orientation program when you arrive to help you settle into life along the Thames.
  • Make new friends, develop skills, increase your confidence, give something back to your community, make a positive impact on the lives of others' – and most importantly have fun! Volunteer at the local dog sanctuary, help regularly in a school or care home, mentor a teenager, run your own project from scratch – the possibilities are endless!
  • Kingston University Students' Union (KUSU) offers more than 60 active societies who organize and run weekly activities related to culture, faith, academia, arts, activities, liberation and campaigns.

Your Home Away from Home

Academic Year Students: Resident Halls
  • Self-catered with shared kitchens and laundry rooms
  • Your room is furnished, although you will have to bring your own bedding, towels and cooking utensils/equipment.
Semester Students: Lodgings
Lodging is a single room in a private house with a resident landlord. Lodging is NOT the same as being placed with a host family, as you will live separately from the householder. Students may be placed in a home with a single working woman or family (with or without children), but never with a single male. All landlady's and adult residents at the lodgings must undergo a police background check. Kingston University's accommodations office will assist students with the housing process.You will have:
  • a furnished bedroom, including bed, desk, chair and storage;
  • access to the kitchen to prepare your meals;
  • access to the bathroom; and
  • bedding and cooking utensils/equipment.

Visas and Immigration

Visa requirements frequently change and you are ultimately responsible for correctly completing UK immigration requirements.  Please do not apply for a visa or purchase airplane tickets until you have received information and support documentation from the SUNY New Paltz Center for International Programs office.
  • US citizens:
    • not required if studying for a semester (less than 6 months) and you are not working, interning or volunteering
    • Required if studying for the academic year (more than 6 months) and/or working, interning or volunteering
  • Non US citizens: check with British consulate for visa requirements
