16 Things You Learn To Hate About Studying at The University of Kent

It’s not always easy being a student at Kent.

1. The price of buying anything in Essentials.

It’s probably the reason you’re in your overdraft.

2. And the time it takes to do so if you’re in a rush for a seminar.

Everyone else is trying to do the exact same thing: grab a snack before the next thing on their timetable. Avoid.

3. That pointless hole in the top floor of the library.

Because nothing creates more study space like a huge, unexplained crater…

4. And the seemingly endless building work.

HOW is it not finished by now?

5. Trying to go into town when it’s full of tourists.

When all you want is a Belgian waffle from Chocolate Café, but to get it you have to fight your way through hordes of French children on a school trip.

6. The hills. Everywhere.

There is no escape, every walk up Eliot footpath is the equivalent of conquering Kilimanjaro. Probably.

7. The Eliot and Rutherford prison architecture.

Not exactly prospectus-worthy.

8. Not to mention how confusing it is to navigate your way around them.

And once you finally master Eliot, you venture to Rutherford only to find that everything is back to front.

9. Peak time at the gym 😳

The pit can be a scary place at the best of times. Throw in 4385732 weightlifters fighting for a bench whilst still nursing a Vensday hangover and the place is basically a warzone.

10. The horror of realising you have 0 minutes to make it from Woolf to Keynes for your next lecture.

Your main source of cardio.

11. Christ Church Students.

We say it’s banter, Varsity is all fun and games, but the rivalry is real.

12. Our not-even-slightly-scary mascot.

Yeah he’s cute and fluffy, but mascots are supposed to be intimidating ffs.

13. And that big metal architecture tree.

What even is it? What is it for?

14. Trying to walk through Central Plaza in Election Week.

It’s impossible to make it across that square of concrete without being jumped by campaigners shoving flyers at you.

15. Realising you’ve left it late and have to compete for a cab from Venue.

You’ve had a great night. You and your pals have successfully completed the choreography to ‘Reach for the Stars’ for the twelfth week in a row. But then the clock strikes 2.30am and the drunken battle for apparently the only 3 cabs in Canterbury begins.

16. But ultimately, even though you say you hate these things, what you secretly really hate is the fact that one day you’ll have to leave.
