The University of Kent was granted its Royal Charter in 1965 and the first students arrived in the October of that year. The original campus in Canterbury covers 300 acres
just over a mile from Canterbury's city centre.
The Medway campus was founded in 2000 in conjunction with Mid-Kent College. It was originally based at Horsted and the Bridge Wardens' College, Chatham. In September 2005, the University moved from its Horsted premises to the newly developed Pembroke campus which it shares with the Universities of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church and Mid-Kent College.
The Medway School of Pharmacy was opened in 2004 and is a joint school with the University of Greenwich on the Pembroke campus in Chatham.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these university semester holiday dates are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes.
