Facilities and Services

Facilities and services covers a broad area, from computing and catering to timetabling and the buildings themselves.

To make sure any new developments fit the needs of the University, we engage with students so we know that everything feeds into improving the overall experience of studying with Canterbury Christ Church University.

Our aim is to give you timetable information that is relevant to you.

  • Individual Student Timetables (ISTs) have now been introduced for most students. You will have details of where and when all your lectures, seminars and other programme-related activities for the term ahead are happening.  Any last-minute changes or cancellations to timetabled sessions, which the Timetabling and Rooming Office are made aware of, will be highlighted in yellow to help make them more noticeable.

We want to make sure that you have the best experience at our campuses with the latest facilities

  • A £4.6 million Student Hub will be opening in 2017 at the Medway Campus. Once the site of a swimming pool and skittles alley, the listed building is being transformed by the Universities of Kent and Greenwich, into a new, vibrant entertainment and social space for all students from Kent, Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church Universities. 
  • A new SU Social space at Broadstairs campus moving Touchdown into Dwell.
  • The Sports Centre had a major £2m refurbishment this year installing a new Pulse Move system, upgraded gym facilities, spin studio and a new dance studio as well as a new sports hall at Polo Farm.

Ongoing investment, combined with your feedback in the University surveys, helps us to keep computing facilities up-to-date.
