The Medway campus is based in Chatham Maritime, close to Chatham's Historic Dockyard and was formerly part of the Royal Naval Barracks.

Rochester, a couple of miles to the south, is proud of its castle and cathedral. The town stages events throughout the year, including music concerts and Victorian-themed Dickens festivals. In nearby Chatham you can find shopping centres and high street stores, while Rochester offers a range of quirky shops along its cobbled high street.

The Dockside is a 5 minute walk from the Medway Campus and includes Restaurants, Bars, Cinema, Trampolining Park, Gyms and a shopping centre.
