How it works
Kin homes are specifically designed to student’s needs.
All our homes are equipped with high-speed broadband, so you can complete your coursework, video-chat with family, and stream music and films in your downtime. Stay productive and stay connected in our student homes.
Furnished ready for living
Our homes have all the furniture you need. Kitchen, bedroom, living room, bathroom, dining area – everything’s ready for you. And don’t worry, there’s plenty of space to study too!
With houses in the best neighbourhoods of the UK’s top university towns, you’ll feel right at home. We chose our locations carefully, so that you’d have your university, restaurants, shops, and green spaces all nearby.
When you’re ready to move in, there’s no need for an extra fee. We don’t collect deposits from our student residents so you don’t have to worry about greedy landlords keeping your deposit after the term ends.
App based issue reporting so that we can get any problems sorted before you know it. We also include handy tips so that you can troubleshoot small issues without the need to wait for a call out.
All Inclusive Billing
Your monthly bill includes your share of rent and utility expenses – and that’s it. No sharing bills with housemates or pestering them to pay their share. You’ll pay for your housing bills only.
Answers to frequently asked questions
We ask that you pay a small holding deposit to secure your home and take it off the market. This is then deducted from your 1st month’s rent. We do not charge a security deposit, we instead provide deposit replacement insurance via our partner, Canopy. This means you don’t have to fork out a large lump sum and worry about it being kept unfairly at the end of your tenancy.

Yes they are! We include all utilities and complimentary superfast fibre broadband in our homes so you don’t have to worry about splitting bills or setting up joint accounts with your housemates, just one payment covers everything.
