The buildings are slowly being updated, the new Business School at Kingston Hill is full of technology and is truely of innovative design, and with touch card facilities to access most building and their rooms it is a safe place. The Library at Kingston Hill has a lot of computers, however at peak times during the day it can be difficult to find one and there are always a good handful which are broken, but perserverance will usually award you with one. However there are plug sockets everywhere for laptops to be plugged into, and always spare desks to be found. The online resources are numerous, however do not expect to get your hand on core text books as they go very quickly and you're better off buying a copy then going on the waiting list. There are usually outdated and alternative copies but for a subject such as Law which easily goes out of date these are not always appropriate, but can be useful if not fully relying upon them.×

My course is quite full on. In first year, we were required to be in from 10 til 4 for three days a week, with the other two days being devoted to a lecture and self initiated study or life drawing. The tutors have all offered excellent service and really push you to fulfil your potential. All of the work from the year is counted as coursework so there was no exam stress.×

Accommodation - coming into my first year I didn't get halls...when I live over 250 miles away yet people living under 50 miles away got given a place. It made it a difficult start to the first year as a social aspect was missing due to us not living near any other students. Kingston really need to build more halls of residence in order to cater for the number of students they accept.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
