About Us

Kent Union Technical Services is an award winning volunteering group run by students at the University of Kent, Canterbury.

We cater for all types of events including:

We offer sound, lighting and stage hire. We are also a consultancy service to societies, bars, individuals and other groups/organisations on and off campus here at UKC.

Our prices are very reasonable and are unlikely to be beaten by external companies as Kent Tech is run by student volunteers. From a simple mic and music playback system, to a loud high powered lighting and sound rig suitable for DJ nights, all the way though to a festival stage, Kent Tech can provide a solution.
