Student outside the Drill Hall Library on Medway campus


Our Medway campus reinvents a former naval base as a 21st-century study space, with exceptional facilities and support.

Welcome to Medway

The community on the Medway campus is friendly and close-knit, with students from a variety of backgrounds working and socialising together. Close to the towns of Rochester and Chatham, with their fascinating histories, and part of the redeveloped Chatham Maritime area, there is plenty to do both on and off-campus.

The Medway campus has two sites, Pembroke and The Historic Dockyard Chatham. It's just a ten-minute walk from one to the other, so it's easy to make the most of the facilities on each site.

Our sites


Opened in 2005, Pembroke combines historic and new buildings including the Drill Hall Library, the Student Hub social space and various cafés. Also on site are our centres for journalism, and professional practice, the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences and the Medway arms of the School of Computing and the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham

The Dockyard’s fascinating history is visible in the staggering scale of the buildings on site, which reflect its industrial past. The spaces have been adapted to provide industry-standard facilities for the University’s Centre for Music and Audio Technology and a home for the Medway arm of Kent Business School. The Dockyard is also home to The Galvanising Shop Café.
