University of Kent
7.5 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 82 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The location is perfect, Canterbury is always buzzing with fun when students are around. During the holidays you get to appreciate its chilled side. I love that all the university facilities are on one site; from the university shop to medical centre to club venues to the library. One could literally move in in September and never have to leave the campus grounds. It's very convenient. The security provided to the students is amazing as well."
