Turing is the University’s newest college.
The College consists of accommodation buildings with over 800 study bedrooms and a hub that houses social space, a study area, a launderette and dining/catering facilities in ‘Hut 8’.
The six colleges at Kent are each named after distinguished British figures – Darwin, Eliot, Keynes, Rutherford, Turing and Woolf (the postgraduate college). They are more than just halls of residence because, in addition to living, social and catering facilities, they also house lecture theatres, seminar rooms, computer terminal rooms and academic schools.
All students and academic staff belong to a college, so you have plenty of opportunities to meet people studying different subjects. Each college has a Student Committee to represent students’ interests and to help organise social activities. Colleges also have a Master, who is responsible for student welfare within their college.
The College Masters' Office offers support and assistance to students in all matters of welfare and guidance.
