Life at UCA Rochester

University for the Creative Arts, Rochester

A small historic town with a modern artistic twist – the vibrant arts and music scene is the lifeblood of Rochester. When you study with us, you’ll be immersed in a creative, fun atmosphere surrounded by people with the same passions as you.


Starting a new course can feel a little strange at first, particularly if you’re moving away from home for the first time, but we’ll do everything we can to make you feel right at home

It’s really important that you find the right accommodation for you, so that it suits your needs in every way. Choose from campus halls of residence, privately rented flats and houses or local lodgings.

Our halls of residence in Doust Way are a five-minute walk from campus and house up to 215 students, usually in flats of six. If you’re applying to study Television Production at Maidstone TV Studios, you can apply for accommodation in Doust Way too.

For more information, visit our website.

Discover the town:

Only a 10-minute walk from Chatham station, the campus is bursting with creative energy, with students taking advantage of the incredible facilities and inspiring environment to work collaboratively on projects of all kinds.

Whether it’s arts, dance, exhibitions, lectures, festivals, music, theatre or film, you’ll find your tastes are catered for. With over 30 days of free festivals and over 600 events every year, Rochester and its neighbouring towns will keep you fully entertained.

Student Union:

UCA Rochester offers a friendly and welcoming environment for you to meet friends, put on events, socialise and explore your interests.

Our multi-award-winning Students’ Union (SU) at UCA is here to make your university experience the best it can possibly be. We can help you develop new skills outside of your course, campaign for what’s important to you and, most of all, get the best from all the life-changing experiences that are open to you throughout your time at UCA.

Activities cover all sorts of interests – fencing, street dance, fashion community and Christian union are just some examples of what’s on offer at UCA Rochester.

Check out the SU’s website for more details on clubs, events and contact details.
