I really enjoyed my stay at Novel riverside, the building was very nice and staff really friendly, it was located in a good position for shopping and getting to campus, however since leaving in June 23 I have emailed and phoned on numerous occasions to get my deposit back and have received not one email or phone call back, this is really beginning to cause me stress as I need the money to help pay for rent on my new accommodation.

The university has a lot of resources, however there is little to no social life (other than clubbing) or activities to do in between classes/studying. Restaurants need more variety on their menu and the service on campus is terrible

I don’t know what happened to the wifi this year but it’s been horrible, most of the time I have to use my data. I’ve always wanted to join a sport society but they’re too expensive for me to play competitively. My course ultimately is quite good with showing us opportunities to do with our degree post graduation

I ‘like’ the Univeristy of Kent, but I would say that stems from the content of my course and the friends that I have made. I think that the univeristy lacks, and I have noticed this when I have visited my friends at their universities. Coming from a big city, I think that Canterbury and the Univeristy of Kent feels rather small and boring to me compared to what I’m used to. However, Kent has a great library, a good enough student club with good themes. Another major problem is the lack of shops, coffee shops and other stores on campus (there are just two co-ops which are too overpriced for students)

The university has a vibrant and diverse community of students and staff from all over the world, which makes for a rich and stimulating learning environment. The facilities on campus are modern and well-maintained, including state-of-the-art classrooms, libraries, sports facilities, and student accommodation. The campus is also located in a beautiful setting, surrounded by greenery and overlooking the historic city of Canterbury.

A friendly small university. A lot of opportunities to socialise and make friends including societies, teams and the union. The campus has a good set of bars and restaurants, and two co-ops on campus. The Templeman library is a large library with plenty of space to work in. These spaces are split between silent studies and more social group-work spaces.

Never had any issues with any of the above, the campus is big and welcoming and there seems to be a society for absolutely everything. The student union have done a lot this year in regards to the cost of living crisis, allowing extended opening times for the campus food bank. The careers service are amazing, I receive a weekly newsletter on jobs in the area as well as graduate schemes to apply for.

It has been an amazing first year in the uni of kent there are so many clubs and societies to join fpr everyone. However, if you are not a type of person enjoys clubbing, you may be lonely.

DO NOT GO to this uni. I am a 3rd year student and they have decided on a marking boycott- essentially they are refusing to mark our work until they get their concerns met but higher members of staff. So our degrees might be useless- they don’t care about their students!

I've enjoyed my education at Kent Uni. The professors are super friendly and the quality of the teaching is good. My modules (literary history) were interesting and engaging. The campus facilities are alright. Some buildings feel more welcoming than others, but overall it's clean and in good shape. Internet usually works but it's not the fastest.

My time has overall been good, and your experience will depend on your expectations- I would of hoped for more of a community feel since its a campus uni based in a small city, but that hasnt been the case.

I am really enjoying my time at Kent uni.The facilities are good, the college system is a lovely way of getting people to meet new people, and the campus is beautiful and feels vey safe. I love my course, and the lecturers have been really supportive through the online learning Covid experience and always available for drop in virtual sessions. I’ve felt very well supported throughout my time here so far. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

worst experience possible at a university. Nothing interesting ever happens in the cold and dull middle of nowhere. Lack of teachers caring about the subject they are teaching and students dont bother showing up to the lectures and classes. Dont bother going to this university as it is a rip off for what you are initially paying. Dont go here

Kent has been a disappointment so far. If I hadn’t made such good friends I would have left ASAP. Let’s start with the actual education: my contact hours are beyond minimal, seminars are a thing of the past, lecturers have no passion, the list goes on. All the lecture halls are good quality. Student life: EXPENSIVE. co-op will break your bank! Eating on campus is expensive; pizzas, burgers, curly fries served at ALL places to eat with no alternatives, great on the first week but you will miss having a side salad... Nights out: The venue is TINY, anymore than 200 people and you can’t breathe. Highly recommend club chem in town (NOT the Cuban - don’t do it!), get a bus pass! Accommodation: awful. If you don’t get Turing, Tyler or the brand new parkwood houses, good luck. Even then you’re miles from campus. Jobs: Non-existent. No help from the uni, they don’t hire and neither does town. Sport/societies: gym is decent, no pool tho, ENDLESS societies!!!

You'll get internet speeds of 45 mbps. Rooms get worse with the older time it was built. There is a lot of career advice. Picking the right room is essential and avoid eliot college by all means. There are thousands of fun clubs and societies.
