What is Kent Summer Fest?

Kent Summer Fest is a fun-packed fortnight of events taking place 21 June- 2 July, arranged jointly with the University, Kent Union and GKSU.

Come together for Kent Summer Fest to socialise, relax and experience what Kent and experience our campuses have to offer after such a difficult year for everyone.

You can look forward to outdoor screenings, live music, street food from around the world and more! This includes lots of evening events so you may wish to stay on campus to make the most of what’s on.

Can I stay on campus during Kent Summer Fest?

Don’t miss out on all the fantastic activities taking place during Kent Summer Fest. On-campus accommodation is now available to book for commuting students or those who have their off-campus accommodation contracts ending soon.

Canterbury students

Self-catering rooms in Darwin Houses are available to book from Saturday 19 June to Friday 2 July to allow you to make the most of everything going on. You can pick the dates which best suit you and the rooms include bed linen and towels with cutlery and crockery in the kitchen for your use.

Rooms cost just £30 a night which you can book online using the promotion code ‘KentSummer’ subject to availability. You must book between a minimum 3-night stay and a maximum 14-night stay, with payment due at the time of booking. If you need to arrive before the 19 July you can also take advantage of our exam accommodation offer.

Medway students

We have rooms available in Pier Quays too, so if you’re not currently living in Pier Quays and would like accommodation during Kent Summer Fest please email with their required dates of stay, and a member of the team will respond to your enquiry.

Living in one of our Canterbury campus rooms already?

There’s still time to register for your free accommodation extension meaning you don’t need to move out until Saturday 3 July. Just follow the registration link emailed to you by the Accommodation Office (will be sent on Tuesday 18 May) if you haven’t already. Deadline to register is Friday 21 May.
