University Of Kent 2nd year accommodation

Accommodation

The University offers a full range of accommodation and has strong links with the local community in providing an accreditation scheme for private rented houses in both Canterbury and Medway.

Second year

Find out more

Further advice and information for second year students is available from the Accommodation office

Second year students generally live in private rented accommodation off-campus with friends. The process of choosing housemates and a house normally starts in spring term of the first year (January/February).

The University provides an accredited list of local housing to ensure peace of mind for parents and students.

All accommodation on this list will have been visited by a member of staff from the Accommodation Office and will meet minimum safety standards.

Most landlords already have experience of letting properties to students, and the scheme has the added advantage of dealing directly with the landlord/owner and avoiding letting agent fees or commission.

Help available:

  • Free housing advice and a ‘Housing Week’, hosted by Kent Union
  • List of off-campus housing and landlords
  • Accommodation message board
  • Read advice from Kent Union on student housing
