Mature Student Society
Kent Union has a Mature Student Society with acts as a forum to promote the challenges and needs of students over the age of 21. As well as being for mature students, the society welcomes students returning to education, part-time or a commuting student and students who have dependants or caring responsibilities.
The society meets regularly and is a great way to socialise with others students with similar responsibilities and potential interests.
Mature and part-time student network
Kent Union has a number of student networks. The mature and part-time student network aims to represent and act as the voice for all mature, commuting and part-time Students, and to feedback key issues that affect the Mature, Commuting and Part-Time student experience to both the University and Kent Union. It is open to any student at Kent who defines as mature, commuting or part-time, so why not get involved?
Social spaces on campus
We have a number of relaxed lounge spaces in Canterbury and Medway that are open to all students (and staff) who may wish to chat, study, eat or drink between lectures and seminars.
Many of these spaces have access to hot water for drinks and microwaves so you can heat up food from home.
Student parents/carers support
If you are also a student parent/carer, we have additional support and information available.
