Studying and Living in Canterbury

Canterbury College is only a ten minute walk from Canterbury city centre and is surrounded by ninety acres of parkland. In addition to a vibrant atmosphere and historic legacy, Canterbury provides a engaging environment for students pursuing higher education to enhance their career and personal development.

With over 70 shops, restaurants and cafés, including libraries and the historic Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury is a great mix of old and modern, city and countryside, you’ll never get tired of studying in the heart of Canterbury.


Canterbury College currently does not provide accommodation for students, however, private student accommodation is available throughout the city of Canterbury.

We recommend using Home Stamp Kent, although other local providers are available.


Canterbury College provides on-campus support through our wellbeing centre (you can find more information here), and we also ensure students are aware of where they can access support off-campus too.

We often direct students to Student Minds, a mental health charity focused on empowering students to take care of their mental health whilst they study. They provide students with the resources they need to develop the skills and knowledge needed to look after their mental health effectively. They also seek to ensure students have access to the mental health resources they need on campus through a student-led strategy.
