Student accommodation in canterbury

About Us

Jon Gauld Student Lets has been renting student accommodation since 1985; starting off in Canterbury, we have expanded to have over 140 properties available for student accommodation in Canterbury alone and have branched out into Medway, where we have built a selection of purpose built en-suite accommodation.

We are  the only Landlord in Canterbury who sits on what is known as the Student Community Group. This consists of representatives of the City’s various Student Unions and relatively 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.

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

We do not charge a deposit for our tenancy’s and our admin fee is much smaller than other letting agents. We also re-furbish our properties to a high standard and have fair and competitive rent prices. For years now we have been able to let our properties mostly on word of mouth as students who rent with us normally stay with us. We have recently converted an old education centre in Gillingham into multiple flats that are perfect for student accommodation; Lustrous House.

Our other main selling points are that all properties come furnished, most 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 lounges.

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

Landlords let their properties through us as we have a great success rate in getting properties let.
