CANTERBURY STUDENT VILLAGE IS SITUATED ALONGSIDE THE GREAT STOUR RIVER.
Why not take a short break and come and explore Canterbury, one of the UK's UNESCO World Heritage sites located in the district of Kent and one of the great university locations. A busy market city with much of its medieval character intact, this famous location is the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Anglican Church. Explore where St. Augustine converted the first pagan Anglo Saxons and where, in 597, he became the first bishop. His burial site can be found in St. Augustine's Abbey, just outside the city walls and was a much-revered shrine until the building of neighbouring Canterbury Cathedral.
Canterbury Student Village offers an ideal self catering base to explore the sights with private en-suite rooms and luxury private studios for that perfect getaway! Ideal for large groups, why not get together with some friends and relax in your own private apartment, ranging from 4 to 7 bedrooms! Canterbury Student Village offers comfy rooms, with large kitchen areas in the shared apartments and private kitchenettes in the self contained studios. The property offers roof terraces to soak up some of the evening sunshine, common areas to chill out with friends and a wonderful setting alongside the Great Stour river.
Canterbury Student Village is just a 30-minute bus ride from the University of Kent, with excellent transport links. It is just 56 miles from London on the M2/A2, and high-speed trains run regularly between Canterbury West and London St Pancras, taking less than an hour.
