Living in Folkestone as a student

Folkestone is coastal town in Kent and is home to the University Centre Folkestone. The college is an amalgam of the creative arts departments of the University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University brought together in a new faculty. Folkestone is also a short drive from the University of Kent, meaning that the town is well connected to other universities in the area.

As a result of its associations with various universities, many students in Kent choose to live in Folkestone and it does have a favourable accommodation provision. Many universities in and around the area offer properties owned by the university as well as options for privately owned halls of residence. University halls usually offer a choice of either catered or self-catered and a private or shared bathroom. These halls of residence are typically campus based.

Private halls are situated throughout the area in convenient locations or with excellent transport links into campus. This type of accommodation gives students a good range of options and is generally managed by the well-known companies that effectively administer student accommodation throughout the country.

Shared houses are the preferred option for students that wish to move on from halls and are predominantly popular with groups of 4 or more students. Flats and apartments are also notable options to consider for those that would prefer a slightly smaller residence. This accommodation is typically managed by landlords or letting agents who specialise in student accommodation.
