Best student areas in Medway
Your best bet would be to stay close to Rochester, Gillingham and Chatham which are the closest towns to these higher learning institutions, and so have the most properties for student lets. And whether it’s shared student houses or private flats that you’re after, Student Places can help. We have loads of options all over Medway so check out our student accommodation by clicking the button below:
Easily one of the nicest parts of Chatham is The Historic Dockyard – home to some incredible museums and warships, not to mention the walking tour of the Call the Midwife set AND it forms part of the UKC Medway campus. Students receive free admission into the dockyard, with discounted admission for up to five others so there’ll always be something to do on those weekend visits from the parents.
With excellent links to London and the rest of Kent, and lots to do in the town itself, Rochester is a great place to live. There are some fantastic pubs in the town, as well as a club (Casino Rooms) and lots of coffee shops and greasy spoons for the morning after!
Being a student in Gillingham is packed full of benefits. Let’s start with the entertainment options when you’re out of lectures: there are lots of pubs and clubs in the town centre, as well as parks and playing fields and some free attractions, including the Royal Engineers Museum. For sports fans, there’s a local EFL League One football team (go ‘Gills’) as well as a stadium. What’s more, you’re only an hour away from London.
