Kent offers you several choices of accomodation: halls, self-catering, and rented houses in town.My advice to freshers is - go for halls in your first year then, if you can get in, self-catering in your last.
The self-catering parts are spread into several houses - Brotherwood Close, etc and then a whole village called Parkwood. If you go into these in your first year and you don't get on with your housemates etc you've got to try and make friends elsewhere. Also, in Parkwood, you may find that you are in a house full of foreign students, nice for a year but when you're looking for housemates for your second year not so good as they are guaranteed a place in Parkwood and you aren't.Also, in halls you can at least know that you've got one meal guaranteed so if you do run out of cash at the end of term you can still get a cooked breakfast (that's if you get up in time). You will be on central campus so not far to walk to lectures and the library so you can familiarise yourself with the campus and know you don't have far to go once you're out of bed.
