Start your uni life in our modern all-inclusive student housing and you'll soon have your own Canterbury tale to tell… This Kent city may be famous for its cathedral, castles, coast and countryside, but it's also a buzzing study destination.
Student life is all about starting your own next chapter, and the city that inspired Chaucer's Canterbury Tales is a great place to begin. A brilliant place in its own right, it's also within easy reach of cool seaside towns like Margate and Whitstable. But the universities are the hub of everything going on, with far more than learning to keep students busy…
Step out the door of your student accommodation in Canterbury and you're just moments from an indie coffee shop, cool bar, boutique or club. Head a little further afield and you can explore the quirky shops and oyster houses in Whitstable, take a tasting tour at a local vineyard, or visit the iconic white cliffs at Dover.
Walk its roads and cobbled courtyards to discover Canterbury's history. The area was occupied before the Romans established a town here – find out more with a trip to the Canterbury Roman Museum.
