Kent and Medway Medical School

As a Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) student you have the choice to live at the University of Kent campus or at Canterbury Christ Church University campus. Accommodation at both campuses is offered on a 45-week basis and you will be living with other KMMS students.


To guarantee accommodation in your first year, you must apply for accommodation before 31 July 2020. Offers of accommodation are sent once all course conditions have been met and unconditional places have been confirmed.

Both Universities prioritise applications based on application date.

Part-catered options

We do not have any part-catered accommodation options available for KMMS students. However, a meal plan is available to purchase separately from your accommodation if you wish. The Flex Catering Package gives you £10 credit a day (in the form of two £5 credits) that can be used in a range of catering outlets across the University of Kent campuses. The package is active from 19 September 2020 - 12 June 2021.
