So you’ve just secured your place at the University of Kent – congratulations! Kent isn’t just a university though, it’s a way of life. Here’s what you need to know about your University.

9. But you’ll soon know your way around campus really well.

Getting lost every day will be a distant memory and campus will feel like home. Cute. You’ll still find pretty much everything else about uni confusing though, don’t worry.

13. You’ll be standing on the shoulders of giants.

Ellie Goulding (who didn’t actually graduate), Alan Davies and Gavin Esler all went to Kent. As did E. L. James, but we don’t mention her. Honorary graduates include Orlando Bloom and Harry Hill. Not too shabby…

14. You’ll start getting confused about where you call home.

When you’re at uni your hometown feels like home and when you’re in your hometown uni feels like home. It all gets very confusing.

There are just too many. Nando’s it is then.

16. You’ll definitely visit the Cathedral the first time your parents come to town.

It’s old and cultural, perfect for keeping parents busy. It’ll also get them in the right frame of mind for buying you a huge amount of food shopping before they leave.

 17. The Chocolate Café is heaven.

It’s where you’ll go when it’s cold outside and you have 7000 words to write within the next 24hrs. It will make everything else seem ok.

18. You’ll find ways of making sure that people know you go to Kent and not CCCU.

When people ask where you’re studying in Canterbury it’s always nice to be able to achieve instant recognition of your success at being an amazing human being when responding “at the University of Kent”.

19. The rabbits and ducks will become your uni pets.

You’ll probably end up giving them names.
