Waiting Room

The service is available to all students and staff at the University of Kent (Canterbury Campus) and is staffed 24 hours a day during term time by registered nurses.

UNS offers a confidential service, which provides support and advice, treatment of minor illnesses and minor injuries, contraceptive advice including free condoms and access to emergency contraception.

University Nursing Service (UNS) remains open during  academic term time but is running an altered service at present due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please call UNS on 01227 823503 where the nurse will be able to offer a telephone consultation, signpost you to the most appropriate service or if applicable, offer you an appointment. The unit is running with a closed door at present so all access is via the telephone. 

After midnight until 7am is for emergencies only and access to UNS is via security who will contact the nurse on your behalf. Please call security on 01227 823300 for an emergency after midnight.
