The accommodation on my first year was very poor but it has now been improved. Houses to rent were expensive and landlords do not really accommodate well for students you will find you have the bear minimum and just overall very bad.×
Rigby court. Parham road. Fight to get your accommodation up to the quality you pay for. Generally acceptable for the priceReport
Parham road accommodation is VERY basic. Do not expect too much from it. Lanfranc, however, is really nice and modern.Report
Travel cost are more expensive than expectedReport

I think I should have chosen my accomodation more carefully. I stayed at St Georges student accomodation, and although it was very useful because it was in the heart of Canterbury which meant I did not have to take public transport. Online shopping at stores such as Asda is a great way to save money on food. The Student Union has cheap food although better value can be found at local supermarkets, specially on alcohol. Transport is reasonably priced, although if you have to get the bus often, I sugest investing on a weekly bus pass as you will save money in the long run.×

They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
