Looking for a replacement tenant - Canterbury house share

I am leaving the University of Kent, so I am looking for a full-time student to take over my tenancy contract.

Tenancy from September 2023 - June 2024

Comfortable and fully furnished double bedroom in a large 6 bedroom student home
- 3 bathrooms
- Big communal areas
- Large garden
- On Whitstable Road, about 15 minute walk from the UKC
- Bills included in the rent
- £575 pcm
- £250 deposit (I will pay the cost of the deposit upon written confirmation from the estate agent that the tenancy has been taken over)
- If you are interested, please DM me, I can send pictures of the property.

I haven't yet, is this worth doing?
Hi @chuck1216,

Like @CCCUOfficial said, Canterbury residents group on Facebook is a great way to see if anyone is looking for accommodation. There are many other groups such as 'Canterbury Student Accommodation 2023 - 2024' that may help. If you are in any society group chats still or other student group chats it might be worth posting in there too. Sounds like a great opportunity students would not want to miss!

Good luck with everything.

There are no guarantees but there are students in there who are looking for accommodation. The other group UKC shared in their post is a good one as well! :smile:

Hi @hazielnut ,

I am sorry to here you are having no luck with this.

As it is on campus accommodation the process might be a bit different so I would recommend checking out this website and scrolling down to "Changing your room/contract, leaving early or not arriving". https://www.kent.ac.uk/accommodation/faqs.

I hope this helps but if it does not you are welcome to have a look at their contact details here: https://www.kent.ac.uk/accommodation/contact.

I hope it all goes smoothly. :smile:
