About Kent

Community relations

The University of Kent is committed to maintaining and developing the good relations we have with our local communities.

We make a significant economic, social and cultural contribution to the region. We are one of the largest employers, with over 2,500 staff and we are pleased that over 40% of our students come from the region.

At the heart of the community

We are very proud of our students and the positive contribution they make to the region. Last year, our students clocked over 46,000 hours of voluntary work. Volunteering is just one of the brilliant things our students are doing in the community.
