Share your Kent memories over tea

The 50th anniversary team is offering tea, cake and a seat on a comfy sofa in exchange for your stories and memories of working at Kent.

If the sun is shining, the team will be outside the Registry (by the side entrance to the Visitors Reception) on Wednesday 6 August from 12.30pm to 2.30pm (we’ll be inside if it’s raining!). All staff are welcome so please come along to say hello and bring any photos, films or university publications that you are happy to share – it’s also a great opportunity to show off your achievements! The pop-up tea room will also appear in Medway in the coming weeks.

Throughout the anniversary year, we will celebrate the people who have helped make Kent a top 20 university that’s regarded highly by its students. We want to share your stories and achievements from our first 50 years with the global Kent community in publications and on the new 50th website set to launch in September.

The year begins with an opening ceremony on 1 October in Canterbury and 2 October in Medway. Over 60 projects are planned and the array of different activities taking place will give staff, students, alumni and the wider community the chance to be involved at all of Kent’s campuses in the UK and its centres in Paris, Brussels, Athens and Rome.
