Visiting Richmond

Richmond University has two beautiful campuses in London: our leafy Richmond Hill campus, and our cosmopolitan Kensington Campus. We understand that a large part of making the decision of which university you will attend is to see firsthand where you’ll be studying and living during your degree. Below you will find various events and tours where you can visit us to not only explore our grounds, but also meet staff, faculty and students to learn more about what you can expect here at Richmond! Your story starts here!

Please note:
All Undergraduate students will first study at our Richmond Hill campus in their first and second year, and then at our Kensington campus in their third and fourth year. All Postgraduate students will study at our Kensington campus.
