5.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"My campus (Penrhyn) is located near the Kingston town centre and the Riverside campus is lovely in summer and close to both the Surbiton and Kingston stations, which is handy for commuters! We have a 24-hour library service on the Kingston Hill and Penrhyn campuses as well as brilliant labs for science students and overall great facilities for all courses. Student accommodation ranges between en suite, private, studios and shared bathrooms so there's a wide range for students to choose from. Kingston Hill campus even has its own set of halls on campus. There's a uni bus that runs late from campus, stations and halls and is free for all uni students."
