Community Housing Accomdations Listing Service (ALS)

The Queen’s Accommodation Listing Service acts as a vehicle for advertising accommodation available in the Kingston area for students and landlords. Listings are available online only through the search tool below.

QUEEN’S DOES NOT ENDORSE OR WARRANT THE QUALITY OF THE RENTAL UNITS PROVIDED THROUGH THIS LISTING SERVICE.

It is a tool to help students in need of rental accommodation to connect with landlords who have rental properties available. We strongly encourage students to become informed consumers by reading available materials, asking questions, etc. The Queen’s Town-Gown website has many links to resources for prospective student renters in this regard. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that prospective accommodation is appropriate, suitable and safe.

Queen’s University does operate a Landlord Contract Program. Units that are in the program and advertised on this listing service have been inspected by an independent third party for compliance with City of Kingston Property Standards. They are identified by the tri-colour flag logo on their listing.
