Local area

All of the University of Kent's postgraduate accommodation is located on the Canterbury campus and are just a few minutes walk from Templeman Library, which sits at the heart of the Canterbury campus.

Overlooking the historic city of Canterbury and its Cathedral, the University of Kent campus is only a 25 minute walk away from the city. Additionally, a regular UniBus service gives you the best of both worlds with our 300 acres of green parkland campus just a 10 minute ride away from the bustle of Canterbury city centre with its medieval buildings, lively bars, atmospheric pubs and a wide range of shops. Meanwhile 20 minutes in the other direction on the bus, will find you in the idyllic seaside town of Whitstable.

London is an hour away by high-speed train and we're also the closest UK city to mainland Europe, so you can be in Paris, Brussels or Lille within two hours.
