Walking Buddy - Canterbury

Be matched with another student who's around for a walk next week
Stuck in your room and need to get out, but nobody is around to go for a walk with? We can put you in touch with a walking buddy.

Walking buddies are opportunities to get out, meet another student and energise your mind! Find a reason to leave your accommodation or the library, get outside and enjoy the fresh air with someone else. 

Simply email wellbeingevents@kent.ac.uk from your Kent email address giving your number and which campus you are on, and we'll randomly match you with another student who's looking for a walking buddy. We'll email you their contact details so you can get in touch and arrange when and where to meet, and perhaps even learn a new route around or near campus. Please ensure you follow the current government guidance.

Please follow @UniKentSSW on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook for news on other events and peer support groups taking place throughout the year.

Booking details

If you'd like to take part and find a buddy, simply email wellbeingevents@kent.ac.uk from your Kent email address giving your mobile number, which campus you are on and saying that you'd like to be matched for a Walking Buddy by midday on Friday, and we'll randomly match you with another student who's looking for a coffee break buddy in the following week. We will then email you with their contact details, so you can get in touch with one another and arrange when and where to meet. Your mobile number will not be recorded or used for any other purpose.
