Contact details & directions

Details of how to find our campuses.

UCA Canterbury
New Dover Road
Canterbury
Kent
CT1 3AN

Tel: +44 (0)1227 817 302

Directions

By road

From London, take the M2 towards Dover, then the A2 at Faversham (take the exit at Junction 7).

Exit the A2 at the A2050 to Canterbury. At the outskirts of the city, take a right at St Peter's Roundabout and follow the A290/A28 Ring Road. Turn right at the third roundabout by the cinema (signposted A2050 to Sandwich) into New Dover Road.

Immediately after the traffic lights turn left into the University drive - look for the signs to Canterbury College and to UCA. Follow the drive round to the right and UCA is on your left.

Parking

We have limited parking on campus particularly if you are visiting us on a week day. Exceptions are made for blue badge holders and anyone with special requirements should contact the campus directly on + 44 (0)1227 817 302 to arrange this.

We recommend that you use the Park and Ride car park which is on New Dover Road (postcode for satnav CT1 3EJ). The bus journey to the campus is only about 5 minutes. If you mention to the driver where you are headed they can help with stops. You can also look out for the large Canterbury College sign as the UCA campus is located to the left of this.

For information about the all the car parks available, please visit the Canterbury City Council website.

By rail

Take a National Rail train from London Victoria to Canterbury East, then take a taxi to the University (Make sure that you ask for the University for the Creative Arts in New Dover Road - Canterbury has several colleges and universities and sometimes the taxi drivers get them confused!).

Alternatively take a National Rail train from London St. Pancras International or London Waterloo East to Canterbury West, changing at Ashford International if necessary, then take a taxi to the University.

Eurostar passengers can get off the train at Ashford International in Kent. This station has direct rail links to Canterbury.

By air

It takes between one and two hours to drive from Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton airports to the UCA campuses. The same journeys take between two and three hours by train. There are rail and coach connections from all airports via central London to all UCA campuses. 

By sea

The English Channel ferry crossing arrives at Dover and the Eurotunnel at Folkestone. Dover and Folkestone are both less than 30 minutes from Canterbury.

UCA Rochester
Fort Pitt
Rochester
Kent
ME1 1DZ

Tel: +44 (0)1634 888 702

Directions

By road

Take the M2 from either London or East Kent direction, then exit the M2 at junction 3 (A229). Follow the signs to Chatham/Rochester. After the Toys 'R' Us roundabout, stay in the left hand lane and continue onto City Way.

After about 2 miles, at the bottom of the hill, turn right at the mini roundabout into New Road Avenue, then after 1/4 mile turn right into Fort Pitt Hill. The entrance to the University is at the top at the hill.

 

Parking

Unfortunately there is no parking available at Rochester and visitors are encouraged to use public transport where possible. Exceptions are made for blue badge holders, and anyone with special requirements should contact UCA Rochester directly on +44 (0)1634 888 702 to arrange this.

There is some street parking is available near to the campus but this can get very busy. There are a number of car parks nearby and the nearest one is at the Pentagon Centre in Chatham (postcode for satnav ME4 4LA) or there is also King Street Car Park in Rochester (postcode for a satnav ME1 1YD). Both of these are about a 10-15 minute walk away and the campus is on top of a steep hill!

For more information about car parking in and around Rochester please visit the Medway Council website.

By rail

Trains leave from both London Victoria and London St. Pancras stations and you can go to either Rochester or Chatham stations as our campus is an equal distance between the two. However we recommend that you go to Chatham station as the walk to the campus is slightly quicker and a more direct route. For times and details of trains please see the National Rail website.

Eurostar passengers should change at London St. Pancras International and then join a train to Rochester or Chatham as above.

By air

It takes between one and two hours to drive from Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton airports to UCA Rochester. There are rail and coach connections from all airports via central London to all UCA campuses.

By sea

The English Channel ferry crossing arrives at Dover and the Eurotunnel at Folkestone. Dover and Folkestone are about an hour from Rochester.
