I'm from Canada, so university residences aren't exactly known for their cleanliness (or positive smell), but Turing College is different. Great room, solid comfortable bed, cable television, clean and well adorned bathroom, a desk for working--all around good place. If you arrive after 10pm to check in, just call campus security at the front door (there is a phone provided),... More

Amazing value, good transport links. Breakfast is included in the price, and the food was plentiful and lots of choice, full english or cereal, croissants, fruit, or a bit of everything! the rooms, campus and restaurant were all spotless. You have an ensuite too. A shared kitchen and dining area so if you want to cook you can. I will... More

I stayed as a single traveller in a room at Turing College for the August Bank Holiday, and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was (certainly nicer accommodation than when I went to university - the students are lucky!). Don't be put off by the fact it's student accommodation during term time - my room was as if no... More

We stayed here for four nights and were not disappointed the service was very good, they even had a medical centre. Being only five minutes from Canterbury proper it was also very convenient. As parking is at a premium in Canterbury I would suggest catching a bus from the University (2 minutes walk).

I stayed with a group of friends. We had 4 double bedrooms in one of the flats. The rooms were fab, nice en suite and I think it's the newest accommodation on campus. My friends and I were having a reunion as we graduated from UKC 6 years ago. It was clean, towels and toiletries provided, along with tea coffee... More

Stayed here for a work trip to Canterbury. The lady on reception was very friendly and quickly looked how long it would take to get to our meeting the next day whilst checking us in.

My friend booked the accommodation for our group of 9, and when she sent me the picture (of the outside), I have to say my heart sank a little. I'm quite fussy with where I lay my head down for a weekend break, but as we all wanted to stay together, I thought I'd suck it up. However, on arrival... More
