This constituency covers the northern part of Hull. A diverse constituency, it includes the large social housing estates of Bransholme, North Hull and Orchard Park, as well as some of the city's most desirable housing areas in the Avenues, Newland Park and Beverley High Road areas. A seat with a large student population, Hull North has the University at its centre, and many students live in the Newland Avenue and Beverley Road communities. A large new housing development in the north of the seat called Kingswood is also rapidly changing the constituency's demographic profile.
Kingston upon Hull North includes the Hull City Council wards of Avenue, Beverley, Bransholme East, Bransholme West, Bricknell, Kings Park, Newland, Orchard Park and Greenwood and University.
