Welcoming campuses

Stunning locations on the beautiful Kent coast

Studying at the University of Kent is a connected experience, and in tomorrow's world connections matter more than ever. One place your child will have a strong connection to is their campus and the local area - it's where they'll make the memories that last a lifetime.

A home from home

Our campuses are in the south-east of England, close to miles of coastline and plenty of green spaces. Canterbury is our original site, set in 300 acres of parkland, with all facilities in one place. Medway is one campus with two stunning sites, and its rich maritime history makes it a fascinating place to study. Take a closer look and get to know us better.

Meet some of our students

Your son or daughter will create their own community at Kent. They'll make new friends on their course and in the societies they join. They’ll find people who love what they love, who share their interests and their sense of humour. Hear from some of our students about their experiences.
