Greenwich and Kent Students' Unions (GKSU) is a partnership between Greenwich Students’ Union and Kent Union. GKSU serves the Medway campus community.
As a student member of GKSU you get the best of both worlds, as you’re not only a member of GKSU but of Kent Union too.
Societies and groups
Student societies are a great way to make new friends and to try things you have never done before. Whether you want to get crafty or political, take up a new sport or find your inner drama queen, we have a society for you. There are also course-related societies, where you can meet with your coursemates in a more relaxed environment.
We are very proud of the number of hours our students spend volunteering in the community and fundraising. Volunteering can be very rewarding and is a great way to get experience in new areas; you help others and learn a lot about yourself.
And don't forget, a CV packed full of experiences and activities shows potential employers that you like to get involved.

The social facilities are good. The Student Hub brings in DJs and has good music. It’s a nice open space.
Whether you play competitively or just for fun, sport is an important part of the student experience. Team Medway unites University of Kent and University of Greenwich students. We offer competitive and non-competitive sport which is fun and inclusive and is a great way to meet new people and try new things.
We have clubs that compete against other universities in BUCS (British University and College Sport), but also welcome students who just want to play. There are lots of clubs to choose from including men's and women's football and rugby, martial arts, rowing and cricket, but if there isn't a club for your favourite sport, we'll help you create one.
We also run Let's Play, where, for a small fee, you get to try different sports in a non-competitive environment, helping you to stay fit and healthy.
Do you sing or play an instrument? Join one of Medway's choirs or ensembles or take part in one of our regular band and open-mic nights. You could also join the University's Chorus, Symphony Orchestra, Concert and Big Bands, or Chamber Choir; these are based at our Canterbury campus, but it's easy to travel between Medway and Canterbury on the free shuttle bus.
