Vacation accommodation

If you live on-campus, you may need to move out of your accommodation when your term ends. If you would like to stay in Canterbury, you may be able to book accommodation for the winter, spring and summer vacation periods.

Residents of Becket Court and Keynes Colleges need to move out during the winter and spring vacation periods. Residents of Eliot and Rutherford Colleges must move out during the winter vacation.

As the University closes for around 14 days over the Christmas and New Year holiday period, you can leave belongings in your room.

During the spring vacation, the accommodation is occupied by external visitors and so you need to vacate your room and make arrangements to remove all your belongings for that period.

We will have summer vacation accommodation available in Tyler Court from Saturday 13 June 2020 - Friday 21 August 2020 inclusive. 

Any students requiring vacation accommodation after Friday 21 August should contact to discuss their requirements as soon as possible.
