Kent University Accommodation Thread 2018Watch
I wanted to make this thread for any applicants applying to Kent, so we can discuss our options and what we hope to get!
It would also be helpful for any current students to give suggestions!
So far, my options are:

- Turing college
- Keynes college
- Turing houses
I really liked that they are central campus and I needed a kitchen because im cooking my own meals. Also the houses are so beautiful!! im looking forward to my first year, what about you?
I don't mind having either an en-suite or sharing a bathroom as long as I'm self-catered.
2. 2nd cheapest
3. 3rd cheapest
4. 4th cheapest
5. 5th cheapest
(Current 1st year here)Turing is normally the most popular. Great for freshers week as the kitchens are huge, Keynes is very similar (but Keynes accommodation itself varies, as there are a few different types of buildings).All of Parkwood will be very similar next year. Flats are the best, and are 1 year old and very big, comparable to Turing. Parkwood is also next to the sports pitches/ and outdoor netball courts etc.Parkwood houses are decent, and all of them would have been re-done by the time you're here so all decent. I was in the only unrenovated court and was pretty shite.Tyler is also nice, Rutherford is average, and with Darwin, very out of the way.I'd recommend Turing, Keynes then Tyler (God knows about A, B or C...)
1. Turing Flats - large
2. Keynes Flats - large
3. Turing Houses
4. Keynes Houses
I heard there is a very high demand in the first two. Pretty nervous about that.
