Applications for returning student accommodation will go live in mid-January 2021. We'll share the link via email and online when applications open.
With no application or deposit charges, you only need to pay the standard accommodation price in September 2021. 2021/22 Fees will be available soon.
We've reserved limited rooms across our campus just for returners (except in Eliot and Turing Colleges) so be sure to explore all that's on offer.
How do I live with friends? How high is demand? See our returning student FAQ guide (PDF 6MB) for answers to all the questions we are commonly asked.
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!
