Kent Hospitality provides housekeeping, catering, bar and reception services. We manage residential accommodation throughout the University’s Canterbury and Medway campuses for over 6,500 students and in vacation periods operate a thriving conference and events business.
Plans for an additional 2,000 bedrooms at the Canterbury and Medway campuses over the next coming years will generate further growth for the department, which has a turnover of £40 million.
Kent Hospitality’s staff are our greatest asset and the department offers a comprehensive programme of training and development to ensure that each individual’s personal goals and ambitions can be realised.
