Returning students 2021

Make campus your home again as applications will soon be open for Canterbury campus accommodation. Whether you're currently a first-year or have already come back to campus again this year - we've set aside a limited number of rooms across campus for you in September 2021. See just a handful of the great benefits of living on campus below and keep an eye on your emails for the application link coming soon.

Great benefits to returning to campus accommodation


A range of options

We've set aside limited rooms across our campus with en-suite, self-catered, shared facilities and part-catered options just for you.


Sport membership

Free sports membership at Kent Sport's excellent facilities for students living on campus is included.


Bills included

Wi-Fi, personal contents insurance, water, heating and electricity bills all included in your accommodation fees.


Book with your friends

Is there a group of you who want to live together? No problem, just follow the guidelines in our FAQ and say in your applications!


No deposit

Pay nothing until September 2021 as we don't take a deposit to secure your campus room as you may have to with a private landlord.


On-campus support

The Student Support & Wellbeing, Medical Centre, Campus Security, Self Isolation and Accommodation Teams are all here to support you.


Shorter contracts

Our contracts begin for the start of term in September, so you won't have to pay extra rent over the summer.


Catering add-on

Fancy a self-catered room but want to add on food? Then our Flex Catering Package could be perfect for you.

What happens next?

Prices for 2021/22 are released in late November 2020.


If you currently live on campus, a member of the Accommodation Team will email your Kent email address with all the info you'll need to apply. We'll also keep this page up to date with application links and information.


You apply! Returning student applications open in mid-January and they will stay open until there is no remaining availability. We've set aside limited rooms across all our accommodation options (except Eliot and Turing College) for returning students. Demand for en-suite rooms are high and as we allocate accommodation on a 'first come first served' basis it's best to apply as early as possible!


If you apply early, we'll let you know if your application was successful on Friday 29 January 2021, so check your Kent email inbox and remember, no payments are due until September 2021 even after your application is confirmed.


We'll be sending a second email confirming your exact room/college allocation from early May 2021 onwards.


As soon as you've received your allocation you can log in to your application and accept your accommodation offer for 2021!


That's it! Celebrate with a cup of tea because your accommodation is sorted for next year.

Also keep your eyes open on your Kent inbox and our Twitter or Facebook accounts (@AccommUniKent) for all the latest updates, help and advice.
