The Medway campus
A vibrant campus, close to the river Medway and partly based at the Chatham Historic Dockyard, less than an hour from London (St Pancras) by train, with award-winnning buildings and innovative facilities.
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.
Campus amenities include the popular No1 Bistro and Coopers bar, whilst the Chatham Maritime area (within walking distance of main campus) includes bars, a cinema, a retail outlet, and restaurants. A state-of-the-art sports centre, Medway Park is also available to all Kent students at discounted rates.
The Medway campus is ideally located with easy access to London and Paris. The high-speed train from Ebbsfleet to London St Pancras takes less than 20 minutes. Trains from Ebbsfleet to Paris arrive in around 2 hours.
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!
