" It is a very friendly university, the staff are really nice. There are some nice cafes that serve good food and accommodate dietary requirement but they aren’t open long. The library is very big and modern and is open 24/7 which is really nice but during the day it is always full! "

" I think the university is nice, and I truly feel like I've learned a lot. The major issue is communication. There seems to be long delays on all fronts, from administrative staff to professors. The issues with communication can turn a normal issue into a stressful one. I think that the university is well maintained, offers a lot for student extra-curricular activities, and you will learn a great deal. I just wish that there was a better sense of organisation and communication from the staff here. "

" Great university which I have enjoyed attending. I have learnt a lot from my course which will help me in my future endeavours. I recommended this university for studying and it is in a fantastic location in London with a town centre not to far away to do shopping and have a social life. Also the transport links are good. "

" Overall a poor university experience. I highly recommend NOT going unless you want to be scammed and have your money wasted. This university operates as a business. They do not care about their students and you will be disappointed. Staff and classes are hit or miss, personal tutors don't reply to emails, students are given very little support, and the other students here are anti-social unless you are already in their group. You won't have much of a social life. The halls and bus system are abysmal. Take a workshop class if you have the chance; lectures are pretty boring and depends upon staff expertise, education, and personality. There aren't really any job or internship opportunities or if they are, they're snatched up immediately. There's also a healthy dose of nepotism here. You will have a better chance of succeeding if you have connections. You will regret your time here. The university is in debt and will do whatever it can to take your money and improve its ranking.

" Kingston University has interesting activities and great academic staff. The campus facilities were excellent. It may be a bit overwheming getting used to the campus life style but it is worth it. The university library is open 24 hours during the term, helpful in focusing!! "
