Canterbury Postgraduate Accommodation | University of Kent

Postgraduate accommodation

As a postgraduate student, finding the right place to live will play a crucial role in your university experience. 

Woolf College with its green courtyard, en-suite rooms and study spaces, is the preferred option for most postgrads. However, we also have some studio flats available suitable for single and double occupancy. 

All rooms include utility bills, Wi-Fi, personal possessions insurance and a Premium Plus Kent Sport membership. Just apply before 30 June and you'll be guaranteed to receive a room offer.

Don't be afraid to try to live on campus, it was the best decision that I ever made.

It allows you to become more involved with the campus community as well as enjoy more of the campus resources and meet new friends.
