It's simple apply before the above deadlines and then make Kent your firm choice and you'll be guaranteed to receive an offer.
Then when your offer is emailed to you, just make sure you accept it or get in touch with us before it expires (usually a few days later).
We have a wide variety of room options available to suit everyone and with no need to pay a deposit to secure a room all you need to know is what room is right for you and then get applying.
If you want to live on campus your next step is to apply. Our accommodation application pages always open in mid-January for students planning to start in September of the same year.
If your course starts in January then our application pages will be open from the end of November/early December.
Apply before any deadlines relevant to you and you'll be guaranteed to receive an email offer in due course. It's a good idea to take a look at our application timeline so you know what to expect and when.
When living on campus this year I'm looking forward to...
Having easy access to everything the campus has to offer - the library, social events, restaurants/bars, being close to my classes and just meeting new people all the time.

It's still early days but we're pleased to be able to announce that the first 500 Clearing applicants to firmly accept their offer to study at the University of Kent are also guaranteed to receive an accommodation offer. More information will be provided here nearer the time, but if you want to have an idea of the process for when the time comes, our video or advice page is a great place to start.
Many of our Clearing students are able to secure campus accommodation with us and we've made it as easy as possible to apply. The main thing to remember is that you don't need to apply for accommodation separately. You only need to tell us when asked within your Clearing application if you need accommodation - we'll do the rest.
We have accommodation set aside for students who will be studying with us for less than 9 months, with contract lengths to match your course dates. You can apply anytime before 30 June to be guaranteed to receive an offer, but it's always a good idea to apply early as early as possible, so head over to apply online now!
Starting in January?
You are also entitled to a guaranteed room offer and should apply before 3 December.
Don't worry, we have lots of rooms available, so just because you don't qualify for a guaranteed offer doesn't mean won't get a room on campus.
Our advice - apply as early as possible. We allocate rooms based on your first application date so if you apply early there's still a good chance you'll receive a room offer from us.
Please note that we have no family rooms on-site and only limited couple accommodation meaning we cannot guarantee rooms for these applicants.
