Canterbury

Our campus overlooks the city of Canterbury and the famous Cathedral

Our Canterbury campus was founded in 1965 with just 500 students. We now have around 16,500 students from 158 nationalities and a very cosmopolitan feel.

Welcome to Canterbury

Our self-contained Canterbury campus provides a welcoming environment and a close-knit student community. Campus life revolves around six colleges, the Templeman Library, the Gulbenkian arts centre and the Mandela Building (home of Kent Union) – all set among green and tranquil open spaces.

The city itself has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Explore medieval buildings, lively bars, atmospheric pubs and a wide range of shops just a 25-minute walk from campus. London is an hour away by high-speed train and we're also the closest UK city to mainland Europe, so you can be in Paris, Brussels or Lille within two hours.
