About ViBe Student Living

Bringing design-led, sophisticated styling to student accommodation in Kingston, ViBe Student Living is opening its doors for the very first time in 2017. Within a 15 minute walk from Kingston University and Kingston town centre – and under a mile to the train station, offering fast and regular services into central London, the location couldn’t be better.

All rooms have been designed for student life and each comes with its own smart TV screen.

ViBe’s bespoke studio rooms with private bathrooms and kitchens perfectly complement your life at university, allowing you the personal space to focus on studies or much-needed rest.

High-end, en-suite bedrooms offer a feeling of community, arranged in cluster flats around a shared kitchen and living space. The ideal combination of affordability, private space and social space.

With landscaped outdoor space, a state of the art gym and a cinema room too, ViBe Student Living has everything to help you enjoy an incredible student experience. Within the building you will find social and study spaces, allowing you to work, rest and play. As you would expect, all utility bills are included within the rent, along with a great WiFi connection throughout the property – so no bills to worry about and a constant connection to the outside world.

ViBe is in a great location, but if you don’t fancy a walk, there is a free bus service nearby which takes you directly to all four Kingston campuses. Alternatively, speed up your journey time by cycling – there is a fleet of complimentary rental bikes available exclusively for ViBe residents.

Life in Kingston is fabulous. Its lively town centre is in the heart of one of London’s most exciting boroughs and is positioned right on the bank of the River Thames. Kingston boasts everything you could wish for, from superb shopping to a vibrant café culture and great nightlife!

Exciting student accommodation in a super setting… ViBe really does have it all.

How much is the booking fee and what happens to it?

There is a £250 booking fee. When your tenancy commences, the booking fee will convert into a refundable damage deposit.  All deposits are registered with TDS which is a government accredited Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme provider.  At the end of your tenancy a final inspection of your room will be carried out prior to your move out and if any deductions are required they will be discussed with you at this point. Assuming the room and its belongings are in the same condition as when you moved and you have provided your bank details within our Portal you will get your deposit back within 10 working days. If you cancel your room booking within 14 days of your Accommodation Offer then you will be entitled to a full refund. After 14 days, the booking fee is non-refundable. Please refer to our cancellation policy for full terms and conditions

  • Do I need to pay council tax?

No. If you are a full time student in the UK you do not have to pay council tax. You will however be required to provide a council tax exemption letter from your place of study which you will then send by post to the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Council tax department.

  • What is your payment procedure and do I need a guarantor?

If you have a UK based guarantor, you can choose to pay the rent in instalments. Guarantor needs to be someone in full-time employment. They must be able to provide a copy of their passport/Driving licence; two proof of addresses and sign the two copies of the tenancy agreement. The proof of addresses can be a recent utility bill; recent bank statement; Council Tax letter; recent payslip or Revenue & Customs letter. Your guarantor could be your Parent or Guardian for instance.

If you cannot provide a UK based guarantor then you can either use our Guarantor Services or choose to pay the full year rent in one-go before you move into the accommodation.

  • Can I smoke in the accommodation?

No. Smoking is not permitted in any area within ViBe Student Living. You can smoke outside the accommodation in designated areas.

  • Am I allowed to have guests?

Yes. It is your home so you are allowed to have guests visiting you.

  • Can I cancel my contract before I move in?

Local pubs, clubs, restaurants and more...

At ViBe Student Living you could not be better placed to spend your days as a student. There are many great bars, pubs and local interests on the door step. We’ve put together a few of the favourite local hot spots:

The Rotunda

“The Rotunda offers a great choice of leisure and entertainment and is the place to go for entertainment in Kingston. You can relax and grab a bite to eat or a drink in one of the many bars and restaurants, many of which have great weekday special offers.”

Pryzm, 154 Clarence Street, KT1 1QP

“PRYZM is Kingston’s super club with seven themed rooms to explore which provide a range of distinct atmospheres to suit a variety of tastes. Situated near the train station, the club is within easy reach on a night out and really does have something for every music taste.”

Banquet Records, 52 Eden Street, KT1 1EE

“Banquet Records host regular live performances from up and coming artists and offers the perfect opportunity to spot the UK’s next big thing in music.”

The Cereal Bar, 66 Fife Road, KT1 1SP

“The Cereal Bar in Kingston, Surrey. We pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries throughout the creative food industry. Our ambition is to give people an experience they will never forget and will want to share on for many years to come.”

The Hippodrome, 1 St James’ Road, KT1 2AH

“Hippodrome Kingston opened its doors on 17th September 2009, introducing alternative nights to the previously one dimensional Kingston club scene. One of our main focus points is to provide alternative breakthrough music and entertainment to provide a different clubbing experience.”

The Ram, 34 High Street, KT1 1HL

“The Ram is a traditional pub with a reputation for good food, fine wines and a large selection of regularly changing real ales. The pub also benefits from a large beer garden that leads on to the banks of the river Thames, an ideal spot in which to while away those sunny summer afternoons.”

Stein’s, KT1 1HN

“At weekends it is a fabulous place to relax with friends to have a lazy brunch, late lunch or afternoon coffee. Evenings are great for a nice dinner with a relaxed atmosphere, to enjoy with a group of friends. After 10pm – the night life really starts! It is a great place to have a cocktail, refreshing beer or flavourful glass of wine or late night meal after the theatre.”
