The accommodation is shared with the University of Kent, with rooms available to Canterbury Christ Church University students. Pier Quays is located just 10 minutes’ walk from the Medway Campus and has its own social area, launderette, Tesco Express store, Subway, and Domino's Pizza.
Accommodation is arranged in clusters of flats for between five and eight students, with each flat sharing a fully equipped kitchen and dining area furnished with a sofa. An on-site card operated launderette provides ample laundry facilities for residents, though it is expected that you and your flatmates will arrange cleaning between you.
Bedrooms are designed to provide everything you require during your stay, each being en-suite and complete with a 4ft (small double) bed. Rooms are either hard-wired or have WiFi which is included with the price, as are utility bills, meaning you don't have to worry about rising costs.
