"You’re a short bus journey away from Canterbury... it’s breathtaking. Especially when you’re walking along the top of the campus at night and you look out into the city and see the Cathedral lit up. The city itself is so convenient and full of culture and it’s right on your doorstep."
- Rio Finch, Human Geography
