    Tyler Court B woo!

    Oh a piece of random advice: bring a door stop!

    According to most of my friends who went to uni last year, all doors in halls are big heavy fire doors which technically means you're not supposed to leave them open, but it's a lot more sociable if you do - hence the door stop!

    Me! I am going to Kent!!

    I am going to be doing a PhD in Community Care.

    I did my Psychology BSc undergrad degree at Kent, so it will be strange to go back!

    I was wondering if there are any postgrads out there who are also going to kent? and if so, whehter you have received any news regarding accomodation???

    Freshers-I hope you have a fab time at Kent! I stayed at Keynes college for my 1st year. Keynes isnt that bad, although definitely try and get an ensuite room. The non ensuite rooms were manky!

    I would be happy to answer any questions regarding Kent or any BSc Psychology questions!

    Keynes D block is the best IMHO, not ensuite but big bathrooms with a HUGE kitchen. Unfortunately in colleges you don't get cookers, but microwaves...
    Park Wood is AWESOME!!!!
    Also Keynes probably has it the worst out of all the colleges for food, par exemple for breakfast they have to walk to Eliot and for dinner even further along to Rutherford! Sucks if it's cold ofc.

    I was in Keynes last year (F block). And tbh, it's not that bad having to walk to breakfast you get used to pretty quickly, also you could just not bother (as i know some people who did). the best rooms in keynes are the en-suite one but they have small kitchens.
    D Block does have big kitchens but the rooms are awful. The best rooms are in the new parkwood nice and colourful.
