Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity
EDI at The University of Kent is committed to the creation and support of a balanced, inclusive and diverse community.
Report to the University and get support
We have developed an online reporting tool which empowers students to record details of incidents such as sexual misconduct and assault, harassment, relationship abuse or hate incidents, and get support from an adviser
You can also find more information on each type of incident and the support available to you.
The University offers a wide range of support for Care Leavers to help you at all stages of your higher education journey.

Mature, commuting and part-time students
If you are a mature (age 21+), commuting or part-time student there is plenty of additional support for you and ways to connect with those in a similar position to you.
The thought of coming out as gay or transgender at university can be extremely daunting, especially if you have not come out before. Learn more about support available and how to meet others in the LGBTQ+ community.
Race and culture
We are committed to addressing any perceived barriers in providing and promoting inclusive practices for staff and students from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups and target areas to remove inequalities. Learn more about societies and events celebrating our diverse community.
Religion and belief
The University of Kent is somewhere that cultural, religious and non-religious or similar philosophical beliefs of all are respected. Learn more about our multi-faith spaces and ways to connect with others through societies and events.
Pregnancy, maternity and student parents/carers
We believe that being or becoming pregnant, terminating a pregnancy or having a very young child (including through adoption) should not, in itself, be a barrier to a student starting, succeeding in, or completing a programme of study at the University. Learn more about support available.
