Medway Campus

A state-of-the-art campus in a great location near the redeveloped dockside. You'll find amazing buildings, first-class library facilities, a buzzing social life and a great sense of community. The site was built originally as a naval base, HMS Pembroke, at the start of the 20th century. Kent moved onto the Medway campus in 2005, and most of our buildings are new or have been completely renovated.
