About Us

JG Student Lets have been renting student accommodation since 1985; starting off in Canterbury, we have expanded to over 150 properties available for student accommodation and have branched out into Medway, where we have built a selection of purpose built en-suite accommodation.

Both University of Kent at Canterbury and Christchurch University have leased properties from ourselves in both our Canterbury and Medway accommodation.

We re-furbish our properties to a high standard and complete extensive works on our portfolio every summer. For years we have been able to let our properties mostly on word of mouth as students who rent with us normally stay with us and tell their friends to get in touch.

As standard all our properties come furnished, nearly all rooms have double beds, utility bills (and in some cases broadband and TV licences) are included in the rent price, all bedrooms have their own individual locks and nearly all properties have a communal lounge for a socialising space. We like to make properties feel homely and add finishing touches such as mirrors and canvases.

We have a dedicated team of maintenance staff across all trades and they can quickly attend to any problems that arise and fix them competently.

With over 30 years’ experience dealing directly with the student market, we understand the student pressures and demands and listen to what our tenants are telling us. We are the only student agency in Canterbury who sits on the Higher Education/ Further Education Group. This consists of representatives of the City’s various Student Unions and senior members of the Universities themselves together with resident committees and council members. The committee is chaired by the Deputy Chief Executive of Canterbury City Council and is aimed at uniting the student voice and provide outstanding support and service across the student journey in Canterbury.

 

Portfolio

We have completed a range of projects which cater for the modern market of affordable en-suite accommodation for students.

In 2015 we completed our first major project. This involved a conversion from an old education centre in Gillingham and building a new 3 storey block from the ground up on the same land. It is now a combination of different sized flats perfect for luxury student living making up 81 en-suite bedrooms. Being right on the doorstep of the high street and a short walk from all the three Medway Universities, it has been highly sought after since being finished.

Completed August 2019, our Jeffery Street development in Gillingham,  offers a mix of modern fully equipped en-suite bedrooms and Studio apartments, totalling 63 bedrooms.

Our latest project is set to be completed by September 2020. A pair of linked three-storey Victorian townhouses on Ethelbert Road, Canterbury, are currently under development to become a mix of studio, two-dio apartments and three-bedroom flats comprising of 31 rooms in total all en-suite! Situated within easy walking distance to Canterbury Hospital and Canterbury Christ Church University, the property will feature bespoke kitchen, furniture and interior design accompanying our other purpose-built accommodations high specification finish.
