Colyer-Fergusson Music Building opens

This autumn will provide a truly momentous occasion for the University’s many musicians and music lovers as we are delighted to be opening the doors of the magnificent new Colyer-Fergusson Building for the first time. The building will become the location for all of the University’s concerts, events and rehearsals, finally bringing music at Kent to a dedicated venue.

Sciences successes at Kent

Those who studied at Kent in previous decades would likely find many changes in the Faculty of Sciences, with recent investment revolutionising the facilities available to our students; huge growth in the number of postgraduate students; and the impact of new technology changing the way subjects are taught. It’s not all change, however, as the original buildings that students have known and loved over the years have been sympathetically modernised and refurbished to create exciting, dynamic, and state-of-the-art spaces.

Open Lectures - Inspiring the community

Since the foundation of the University of Kent in 1965 the local community has been warmly welcomed to join alumni, staff and students at regular public
lectures. Over the years these events have proved popular, and are still going strong today, with the regular Open Lecture series attracting a wide audience to hear from public figures and acclaimed experts on a range of subjects.
