Events roundup: 12-18 December

As we reach the end of term, our weekly events roundup continues with its festive theme, including more Christmas events and support if you’re staying on campus over the winter break.  

Please also see our update about snowy and icy conditions for guidance about travelling to campus.

Later this week your Spring Term timetable will be released (from 14 Dec) on KentVision. However, please check it again after 9 January as it is likely there will be changes (e.g. room changes and resolving clashes). For more information, read our timetable advice.
