Kingston offers its residents a variety of rental properties to suit their individual needs. Current listings can be found online, in local newspapers, or through Property Management Firms. It is the norm for landlords to require new tenants to sign a one year lease on the property and request both the first and last month's rent upon signing. Landlords who focus on the student market occasionally have other options available for their tenants. Queen's Community Housing provides an extensive searchable database of listings for both students and faculty members. Several local accommodation providers, such as hotels and bed & breakfasts, also provide short-term rental options. For more information please visit the Accommodation Section on the Tourism Kingston website.
The Kingston Rental Property Owners Association has one of the most comprehensive lists of rental properties found within Kingston and the surrounding communities. You can also search the websites listed below for current apartment listings:
