What is Home Stamp?

In April 2013, Kent Union took over operation of the Canterbury Student Housing Accreditation Scheme, which was formally ran by Canterbury City Council. Home Stamp is the only official university service which helps students to find good quality private accommodation in Canterbury.

The service is managed by a board consisting of seven partners who back the scheme. These are Kent Union, University of Kent, University of Creative Arts, UCASU, Canterbury Christ Church University, CCSU and Canterbury City Council.

Home Stamp also advertise the largest choice of private student accommodation in Canterbury.

Check out the Home Stamp website.


Is Home Stamp the same as a Letting Agent?

No. The service is not-for-profit and also offers a free referral service to your Student Advice Centre for confidential housing-related advice and support to all students.

Properties that are advertised by Home Stamp have been registered by private landlords/agents and have met the criteria set out in the Home Stamp Standards. The Standards are in place to protect students from poor housing conditions and raise the quality of student accommodation across Canterbury.
