College and Community Life

College and Community Life

Welcome to your College community at the University of Kent. Our team is here to help you have the best possible university experience on and off campus.

What are we here for?

Your College Life and Community Life Officers are here for you and continue to operate remotely to support all students through this challenging time. 

Whether you are living on or off-campus or studying remotely, you are all welcome to contact us now or follow us on social media.

Our aims:

  • To help you enjoy your university experience and engage in the opportunities available within the local and wider community here in Kent. 
  • To create an inclusive and diverse community, one that is open and accessible to all students, no matter what your background or previous experiences might be. 
  • To offer College activities, events, initiatives and schemes, working with your College Committee and College Residential Life Assistants to enrich your student experience. 
  • To offer confidential advice and help for any welfare or personal issues, through informal, friendly advice or as a first point of contact directing you to other specialist services on the campuses if needed. We can stay in touch, to support you with any next steps you might take.  
  • To support you in your transition to independent living at university, whether living on or off campus. We offer support to resolve minor disputes within households, and can guide you carefully toward more formal referrals and specialist advice when needed.  
  • We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or bullying toward any group or individual, and you can bring any concerns to us in confidence.
