Eat, drink and shop

Our Canterbury campus is packed with places to eat and drink. If you’re grabbing a sandwich between lectures, meeting friends for a coffee or going out for a meal, you can do it all on campus.

Canterbury has a wide selection of catering facilities on campus, offering foods from classic British to international cuisine. You’ll find our cafés, restaurants and dining halls spread all over campus, so wherever you are there should be something to whet your appetite.

You could be eating Korean chicken wings in Dolche Vita one day and sharing a bowl of garlic butter fries in Origins the next. Why not attempt to conquer the famous Mountain meal in Mungo’s, try a rustic homemade pizza at Hut 8 or grab a freshly made baguette from Bag It?

The Canterbury campus has its own bookshop, pharmacy and launderettes. We also have two campus shops – Essentials and Park Wood Essentials – selling everything you need from fresh sandwiches and fruit to cupboard essentials, ready meals and luxury ice cream.

If you can’t find what you need, you’re just a short bus ride or walk away from the city centre. Head off campus for great shopping opportunities from the biggest high street names to local boutiques and independent retailers.
