The Union of Kingston Students is the student-run organisation that represents all 18,000 students enrolled at Kington, including the 5,000 postgraduate students. It organises a varied timetable of events and activities throughout the year as well as running the various clubs and societies that students can join.
The primary aim of the union is to offer a voice to all students, ensuring that they feel connected to the university and supported if they have any issues or concerns. Between the social and networking opportunities and the help offered, the union serves as a way of bringing students together to feel safe, comfortable and to meet new people.
There are over 90 societies and sports clubs provided by the Union of Kingston Students which offer undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to get involved with a new or existing hobby, make friends or expand their network. These include various subjects and sports such as environmentalism, model united nations, debating, boxing, fencing, American football and more. Students are encouraged to start their own clubs and societies if they have a particular interest not already covered by an existing club or society.
Alongside these clubs and societies, there are extensive volunteering opportunities at the university, while each faculty also hosts a number of networking events throughout the year.
The university is situated in Kingston upon Thames, just a short train ride from central London. The riverside town of Kingston is absolutely packed with character and charm and offers the perfect combination of modern city living and relaxed small-town feel. In addition to being packed with fantastic shops, bars, restaurants and businesses, there is plenty of green space for students to explore and unwind.
Excellent transport links in and out of central London allow students to easily commute to university, maintain a job or work placement whilst studying or simply explore the capital. Kingston’s ideal location makes domestic and international travel easy, given its proximity to London’s Gatwick, Heathrow and City airports.
