Our Facilities

EKC Folkestone College’s facilities are available to all students and staff and some members of the public.


Our Refectory offers a fantastic selection of hot and cold food that is great value for money.

Choose from a variety of healthy meals prepared by our Catering students or grab a sandwich, salad or jacket potato. Hot and cold drinks are also available.

The Salons

The Salons are the high-street-quality commercial salon at EKC Folkestone College. They offer a range of hair, beauty, nail and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments under the supervision of industry experts.

Our salons are the perfect place to unwind and get that little bit of time just for yourself – without breaking the bank.

Appointments are available throughout term time, but at certain points in the academic year appointments may be unavailable. Visitors should report to the College’s reception, where they will be directed to the salons.

We have a large drop-off/pick-up area. Parking is at the front of the College, but there are also large public car parks just a few minutes’ walk away.

The Students' Union

Get involved with our dynamic Students’ Union, led by our Student Experience Officer Sidonie.
This is where your voice and interests shape the College experience, and allow you to take part in a number of trips, events and enrichment opportunites throughout the year.


We’re part of six community-based colleges

Our mission is to play a leading role for East Kent in developing the economic and social prosperity of the diverse communities we serve.
