At Kent, we help you to make the most of your time at university by providing a range of academic support as well as advice on important areas that impact on your everyday life, such as housing and funding.

Your college

All students at Kent belong to a college; students at Medway belong to Medway College. There is a College Master for Medway who, along with Medway College Life organises activities, social and cultural trips, many of which are free. This gives you the chance to get to know students from all subject areas.

If you have any questions or worries about university life, your College Master’s office is the first port of call. They are also responsible for ensuring safe student conduct and enforcing University regulations.
