Living off campus in Canterbury
The links on the right will help you to find off-campus property.
When looking for off campus accommodation, the University advises that students rent only accredited properties. The landlords of accredited properties have agreed to abide by a landlord’s Code of Conduct. This scheme supports better management of student houses in Canterbury.
The University has not visited, inspected or approved the accommodation offered by the local landlords and letting agents advertising on the Accreditation Scheme or StudentTenant sites. Prospective tenants should therefore expect variations in the suitability and possibly the standards of the housing offered. The University does not accept any liability or responsibility for the quality of the accommodation offered or the services provided by these landlords or agents or the content of any external websites.
All students should read the general housing advice section which helps with:
- Finding accommodation
- Checking accommodation
- Understanding contracts
- What happens during a tenancy
Then come back to this section to read about:
- Local landlords in Canterbury
- Hotels and guest house information
- Helpful people to contact in Canterbury
For further details, please go to 'Finding accommodation' in the general housing advice section.
There is also a student to student email message board where requests or notices regarding off-campus accommodation may be posted off campus accommodation forum.
