KU Student Homes

The Kingston University Accommodation Team is no longer advertising properties for private landlords. We are using Studentpad and our KU Student Homes website to exclusively advertise University managed properties. These include our Headed Tenancy properties and Halls of Residence. So we will currently not be able to approve your advert requests.

We are in the process of setting up a pricing structure for our advertising service and we hope this will be set up later in the year.

We offer an advertising service for local property owners who have rooms or properties to let to our students. When you add a vacancy to our list, it will be seen by students and staff throughout the University.

KU Student Homes is hosted on our Studentpad website. In order to advertise properties you need to register with the site and pay the appropriate fee.

Code of Standards

Owners/landlords are invited to advertise their properties on KU Student Homes, provided they are willing to sign up to our recommended Code of Standards and pay the relevant fee. The purpose of this code is to ensure that:

  • owners/landlords understand the requirements of student tenants;
  • owners/landlords understand their legal obligations, particularly in relation to the Housing Acts;
  • owners/landlords enjoy the benefits of successful letting to students;
  • student tenants enjoy the benefits of good housing that is well managed;
  • disagreements and misunderstandings are kept to a minimum; and
  • problems and disputes are resolved satisfactorily.
