Geographical remit: 


We exist to support, empower and enrich the lives of students at Kingston University.

We provide professional, non-judgemental and impartial advice and support to students in need. We offer a sense of belonging and inclusion by connecting students with others who share their passions and interests. We listen to and represent students, giving them a powerful platform to shape and influence decisions that affect their lives. We offer inspiration and fun, giving students opportunities to discover more about themselves, each other, and the diverse world around them.

We are at the heart of Kingston student life, and central to the University’s strategy and future success.


We provide representation at university, campus and course level, ensuring students voices are heard and that all students can express themselves. We have a dedicated team of professional advisors to offer free, independent advice for any student studying at Kingston. We offer confidential advice on a range of issues: Academic appeals, Misconduct hearings, Complaints and Disciplinaries, Notices to Quit, Fitness to Practice.

We support over 90 active societies who organise and run weekly activities related to culture, faith, academia, arts, activities, liberation and campaigns. Approximately 3000 students join at least one society during their time at Kingston University. From Anime to Chess, Entrepreneur to Pharmacy, Nigerian to Wine, there’s bound to be something that students want to get involved with!

We currently support, develop and administer 35 competitive and non-competitive sports clubs with a membership of just under 1500 students. Competitive clubs currently compete in British Universities College Sport (BUCS) and Southern England Student Sports Association (SESSA) as well as local and national competitions. We support a range of non-competitive clubs, from the depths of sub-aqua to the heights of snowboarding. These types of clubs organise and arrange weekend trips and there are always opportunities for training and development for students to reinforce the growth of these activities.

Union of Kingston Students Volunteering is the official volunteering service for current Kingston University Students and Staff. We run five different volunteering streams: Sports Volunteering, Community Volunteering, Student-Led Volunteering, Schools Volunteering, International Volunteering.
