If you’re starting at our Medway campus in September, you might be wondering where to study, how to get online, and how to find the books you need for your course.
Here’s an overview of the library and IT services you can use.
Drill Hall Library
The Drill Hall Library is your main library at Medway. It has the books and you need, plus study spaces, PCs and laptops, printers, photocopiers and scanners, and support for your subject.
- Read this useful guide to the Drill Library. It tells you the basics, like when it’s open and how many books you can borrow.
- Visit the Library for your induction session, which has been pre-arranged by your School or department, to learn your way around.
- Look out for games, competitions and fun prizes in Welcome Week.
IT services for you
Here are some of the IT services you can use as a Kent student:
- Over 500 student PCs, laptops and 800 study spaces in the Drill Hall Library and University of Kent buildings. All the PCs in Kent buildings have Windows 10
- University WiFi (eduroam) in all buildings at Medway. You can set up your WiFi connection before you arrive on campus, which means you connect instantly when you get here.
- Print, copy and scanning machines across campus
Need a space to work? You can use the Postgraduate Researchers’ Room in the Drill Hall Library. This newly designed and furbished room is available for postgraduates from all three Medway universities, providing an excellent space to study, network, practice presentations and meet those with similar research interests.
Not a Medway student?
If you’re at Canterbury and you need a book that’s only in the Drill Hall Library, you can request it to be delivered to the Templeman Library through LibrarySearch.
You can also visit our Medway campus and use the Drill Hall Library. To borrow books, you’ll just need your KentOne card.
A shuttle bus runs in term time between Medway and Canterbury campuses.
