Student Accommodation in Canterbury

A famous pilgrimage site since the middle-ages Canterbury is rich in history and heritage. With its narrow cobbled streets and half-timbered houses Canterbury is the quintessential English town. Full of quiet corners and artisan coffee shops in which to escape the liveliness of university life, Canterbury also has a wide variety of bars and restaurants to be found amid its narrow streets.

With excellent train connections to London and Europe, as well as regular transport around the beauty spots of the South Coast, Canterbury is the perfect location for those wanting to go further afield and explore the county known as the Garden of England.

Home to the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, Canterbury is a bustling student town with plenty on offer for the 28,000 students who call it home.
