Rental Accommodations

Kingston's rental market is relatively tight, with a low vacancy rate, due to the high student population. The majority of Kingston landlords require one-year leases.

Expect to spend at least one full day in Kingston viewing units. It is best not to plan this for a weekend, as most of the major property management companies are closed. To make the most of your time, book viewings with the landlord prior to your arrival. If you require a place to stay during your visit, check our short-term accommodation suggestions.

Queen's Town-Gown Relations provides tips for house hunters. The tips are geared to students, but many are applicable to everyone.
