About the Medway Campus

A forward-thinking university in a historic setting. Discover more about student life and the study experience at Medway Campus in Chatham Maritime, Kent.

Where you choose to study is a really important decision, and we are delighted to welcome you to our historic Medway Campus in Chatham, Kent.

Medway Campus has a rich naval history. Its red-brick buildings were previously a Royal Navy base. Nelson's flagship HMS Victory was built at Chatham's Historic Dockyard.

The campus also has amazing cafés and bars, including those in Pembroke and Pilkington Buildings. An attractive piazza-style area with outdoor seating is ideal for events. There are also plenty of green spaces, with a tennis court.

We offer our students a supportive environment for their studies and the help they need to secure graduate jobs in London, the South East and further afield.
