We know how important it is for you to know where you'll live while at university. That's why we're offering an accommodation guarantee* to students offered a place through Clearing.

*Accommodation guarantee for Clearing applicants

If you apply for a course through Clearing at our Canterbury campus, and are made an offer or accept an interview, you will be guaranteed a place in university student accommodation, providing:

  • you refer yourself via UCAS Track within 2 days of your interview


  • submit your online accommodation application by 4 days after your interview. You will be able to apply within 24 hours of your UCAS status changing to UF (Unconditional Firm).

If you're applying for a course at Medway, please also apply online and we will contact the private provider to see what rooms they have available, or assist you in finding a room in the private sector. 


We'll allocate you a room within a day. You will receive your accommodation offer by email.

To accept your accommodation offer, you will need to:

  • Accept your offer and agree to the accommodation licence (contract) using the accommodation portal before your deadline date.


  • Pay the £115 pre-payment fee online during the acceptance process and set up a payment plan for 3 instalments to be paid in September, January and May - giving email contact details of a guarantor for your booking.


  • Pay all accommodation fees in full* before the start of the first term.

After you have done this, you'll receive an online induction and your check-in details.

*If you pay your full accommodation fees for the whole year before the start of the first term in September, on or before the first day of the Licence Period**, we will give you a £250 bonus for Catering and Food Court Services which will be added to your student card and split into 3 instalments across the year.

**which is noted in the Licence Agreement under B.2.a.i.

We have both en-suite bedrooms and bedrooms where you share a bathroom with other students.

If we offer you a room with a shared bathroom, we advise that you accept the offer. You can contact us nearer your move in day to see if a room change is possible or to be added to a waiting list for an en-suite room. 

Visit our accommodation pages to view the accommodation available. 

We will also have a sample Show Room available to view at the Clearing Open Day.
