A place to study

The upper floors of the library offer stunning views over the city, including Canterbury Cathedral. 

A place to relax 

Augustine House has plenty of breakout spaces for those moments between your study and research. It has a great cafe with snacks and drinks and the whole building is fully Wi-Fi enabled. 

A sustainable building 

Our award-winning building takes advantage of the natural stable temperature in the earth, using the 258 structural piles as geothermal energy sources, providing over 20% of the building’s energy. Carbon emissions have been reduced by 23%.   

Augustine House won the Best Educational Project category at the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Awards for the South East region and the prestigious Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) Design Award.
