Antisemitism in Universities

Kingston University

International Definition of Antisemitism


The University has not adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “Kingston University has a Religion and Belief policy which includes information on ‘Discrimination Arising from Religion of Belief’ and states, ‘Kingston University will take firm action where anyone uses language, treatment or behaviour which discriminates against any other person on the grounds of their religion, belief or non-belief’.”

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 15th June 2023. On 29th June 2023, the University responded.

Students’ Union

When asked on 3rd August 2020, Union of Kingston Students failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.


No incidents have been reported to us, however we recognise that antisemitism is chronically underreported and it is possible that there are incidents that have not been reported. To report an incident, please contact us.

Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
