The Medway campus

The University of Kent’s expansion at Medway is one of the most exciting developments in higher education in the United Kingdom. You can expect outstanding teaching, learning and leisure opportunities, and an exceptional level of personal support. The campus has specialist facilities including, sports laboratories, a dedicated design, production and presentation facility and a state-of-the-art newsroom. The Drill Hall Library conversion is exceptional, offering spacious study facilities of the highest quality.


The site was built originally as a naval base, HMS Pembroke, at the start of the 20th century. Kent moved onto the Medway campus in 2005, and most of our buildings are new or have been completely renovated. For example, the £10 million Drill Hall Library, study facilities include purpose-built studios and music rehearsal rooms, three industry-standard newsrooms and a private sports treatment clinic.

I wanted to be close to London and the Medway campus at Kent was the ideal location. It’s far enough away to not be part of it, but close enough to pop in whenever you want!
