Specialist academic facilities
All professionally focused programmes at Medway are supported by state-of-the-art facilities. The campus has two sites, Pembroke and The Historic Dockyard Chatham. The University has specialist teaching and social facilities at both sites.
Music and Fine Art and the Centre for Music and Audio Technology
The University’s extensive performance facilities include soundproofed practice rooms, rehearsal rooms as well as several performance spaces on both Medway and Canterbury campuses.
Music and Audio Technology students have access to rehearsal rooms, tracking, overdubbing and post-production studios equipped with industry-standard software.
Fine Art students have access to a gallery, a darkroom, a kiln room, plaster-casting, metalwork, wood and machine workshops, as well as print and digital facilities. Chatham Historic Dockyard (close to the main campus) houses new studio spaces and the Galvanising Shop: a fully renovated, split-level design studio and multi-purpose workshop.
Journalism students benefit from three multimedia newsrooms with complete editorial resources including audio and video editing, cameras and autocues, and broadcast studios fully equipped for live and recorded programme-making.
Sport and Exercise Sciences
Sport and Exercise Sciences students use Medway Park, a multimillion-pound sport centre (partly funded by the University). Facilities include a swimming pool, athletics track, sports halls, fitness suite and spa, a Sports Science laboratory, sports therapy clinic and respiratory clinic. The park was an approved pre-Games training camp for 13 Olympic and eight Paralympic sports for the London 2012 games.
Kent Business School
Kent Business School at Medway moved into the fully refurbished Sail and Colour Loft at The Historic Dockyard Chatham in 2015. This exciting venture has been achieved through significant success in student and staff numbers at the campus, creating a need for space to grow further.
Additional study facilities
The Pilkington Building, which received an award-winning, multimillion-pound renovation, houses a 180-seat lecture theatre, an exhibition room, teaching facilities, café and social meeting area.
