at our Open Days
Woolf College rooms surround a grassy courtyard area offering great outside space to relax. All rooms are en-suite and grouped into flats with large social kitchens perfect for relaxing with friends and flatmates, or you can head down to the Woolf College common room for more space to unwind or group study.
You'll only be a two to three minute walk from the centre of campus and a host of facilities including: Templeman Library, handy for those late night study sessions; Gulbenkian cinema, for catching all the latest films and shows; and Origins bar and grill, great for grabbing a bite with friends and enjoy the student atmosphere. You're also nearby to Kent Sport's facilities which you can use for free as sport membership is included with your accommodation.
The college itself is also home to a reception for all your deliveries, a launderette, and cycle storage. Plus with a bus stop on its doorstep it's very convenient for travelling into the city or getting your groceries from one of the local supermarkets.
Woolf College is home to returning undergraduate students and postgraduate students who are housed in separate blocks.

Housed with your friends and fellow returning Kent students you'll be part of the Woolf College community and can look forward to getting involved with any of the events your Kent student union or ResLife Team regularly host.
Lots of students choose to return to live on campus for their second and third years as well to live with the friends they met in their accommodation or on their course during their first year. So while returning students and postgraduate students live separately from first-year students there are always familiar and friendly faces around.
Did you know you can apply to live with your friends? All you need to do is:
One final bit of advice (especially for larger groups 4+) is to apply early. We sort applications by their application date so whilst we will do our best to ensure all preferences are met, this is subject to availability so the earlier you apply the more likely you are to be allocated to your top preferences together. Pre-registering your interest for returning student accommodation can be a great way to get a head start.
A standard en-suite room for September to September (39 weeks) is £8,607.69 (weekly equivalent £220.71). A 52 week contract is available for postgraduate students who are housed separately.
We need no deposit to secure your room and the cost of accommodation includes sport membership, utility bills, internet connectivity, and personal contents insurance when you apply through the University's
