Student Hub at Medway
Once the site of a swimming pool and skittles alley, this listed building has been transformed by the Universities of Kent and Greenwich into a new, vibrant entertainment and social space. Based between the Drill Hall Library and the Sports Hall, the Student Hub is a brand new, state of the art student centre.
Key features include a modern bar, a flexible entertainment and social space with a great range of food, stages for live music and a huge screen for cinema showings and live sports. There's even a quiet space for reading or working on laptops or tablets, plus a series of individual booths, a pool table, comfortable chairs and coffee tables. There is special lighting to make the new space welcoming by day and atmospheric by night.
Students were asked to put forward names for the centre and voted for “The Student Hub” with the name of the café/bar being “The Deep End”. This is a nod to the fact that it is directly over the original swimming pool, part of which can be seen through the glass flooring.
The Student Hub is open to all University of Kent, University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University students and staff.
