Returning student accommodation applications now open

Are you and your friends thinking about where to live next year? Take the hassle out of house hunting and worrying about deposits or bill payments by returning to with us again next year.

We’ve set aside a limited number of rooms across the Canterbury campus and Pier Quays exclusively for returning students, so whether you are in your second, third or fourth year you can take advantage of the great benefits of living with us once again when you apply online!

  • Live with your friends – tell us in your applications and as look as you meet our guidelines we’ll house you together. (Check out our FAQs for more info).
  • No deposit needed to secure your room – pay nothing until September 2022 for Canterbury campus accommodation and only an advanced rent payment for Pier Quays.
  • Guaranteed offer– for the first 1,000 Canterbury returning student applications and all Medway applications. You’ll also get quick confirmation with early applicants finding out if their application is successful at the end of January with their room allocation information following from March.
  • Pay no bills – all utilities are included (gas, water, electricity, heating and Wi-Fi) plus you get to keep your Kent Sport Premium Plus membership for free for another year.

If you are applying for Canterbury accommodation you can apply for any accommodation area except Turing College (which is reserved for new students). In Medway we also have phase 2 rooms available in Pier Quays which returning student applications are given priority for. Rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis so apply early to maximise your chances.

Check your emails from the Accommodation Team or visit our returning student accommodation page for more information including our handy FAQ Guide.

So, remove the worry of finding a new place to live, and instead apply online now and relax knowing you can live with friends and have the great facilities available on campus to return to next year.
