Kingston University students can just roll out of bed and (pretty much) straight onto campus at One Penrhyn Road, but wherever you’re studying, it’s a convenient location. It’s only a five-minutes walk to Kingston station to take trains to Waterloo in central London, and there are major bus routes right on your doorstep. The University of Roehampton is a short bus ride away and St Mary’s University students can take a 12-minute train from the station.
Being so central, the nightlife accessible from One Penrhyn Road is plentiful. A student staple, Pryzm nightclub, is just five minutes away, as is tenpin bowling and a 14-screen cinema. But you might not want to even leave your common room, a fantastic social space and the all-wooden TV snug room is just perfect for a cosy movie night.
And when it’s time to settle into your room you’ll find a comfortable bed, desk, plenty of useful storage and shelving - plus you’re free to customise your room and turn it completely into your own nest. Another great bonus is that the desk chair is properly designed - like the rest of the place - so you’ll remain comfortable during any long study sessions come exam time.
If you want to study in a common space instead of your room, that’s fine because the free Wi-Fi covers both areas. Bills and the cleaning of common space are all included in your rent and there’s safe storage for your bike as well. But whether you’re cycling or walking, popping to the stunning Hampton Court Palace, relaxing by the river or in beautiful Bushy Park, or simply taking advantage of lively Kingston, you’ve got a fantastic balance at One Penrhyn Road.
