Student Services

Welcome to Student Services

The Student Services Directorate is responsible for many of the non-academic aspects of the student experience.

We provide a distinct range of services with an emphasis on student welfare (including community and belonging), pastoral support, and employability. Student Services also has a role to proactively encourage good student conduct and promote positive relations with the local community.

As part of our commitment to deliver on student experience, we work collaboratively with other departments and divisions at Kent, as well as with Kent Union and the local community.
