The Medway School of Pharamacy in Gillingham allows students to stay in halls of residence provided by either the University of Greenwich or the University of Kent.

Students pursuing an MPharm degree have the choice of living either in halls of residence provided by the University of Greenwich or those provided by the University of Kent. Please note that students on this course must only apply for either University of Greenwich's Medway Campus halls or University of Kent's Medway halls at Liberty Quays – not both. If students cannot be offered a room in their preferred hall, they will automatically be referred to the other university to be offered a room in their accommodation (subject to availability).

University of Greenwich Medway Halls of Residence

Located on the Medway campus itself, the accommodation consists of flats with shared kitchen/dining facilities for 4-6 students. Each bedroom has its own en suite toilet/shower facilities, mini-fridge and internet access with wi-fi (for which a charge will apply).

These halls are within walking distance of both Chatham and Gillingham town centres, which feature a range of high street stores and banks. Also nearby is the Dockside Outlet Centre, offering plenty of good value shops and food outlets.
