There are two universities in Canterbury. The University of Kent and also Canterbury Christ Church University which means that there are a lot of students in rented accommodation in the county.

If you are a landlord and you rent out properties, it is well worth considering the installation of CCTV for student accommodation in Kent.


Well, for one thing, it costs very little to install a CCTV camera which can monitor your property 24 hours a day and send you a notification if anything untoward should take place.

Possibly more important is the issue of looking out for your young tenants.

Is someone keeping an eye on your property? A CCTV system will deter criminals from targeting your student housing, or identify them if they do.

A Major Deterrent

The most important point is that the installation of CCTV acts as a major deterrent to criminals. If they see a CCTV camera pointing at them, it is very likely that they will run in the opposite direction, no matter what plans they had, rather than run the risk of getting caught.

This doesn’t just apply to burglars but also to the potential for personal attacks on any young tenants or their visitors as they enter or leave the building at all hours of the day or night.

Apart from that, there is also the possibility of damage to your property. Students are not unknown for going out and having wild parties and their drunken antics could result in damage to your front garden, windows, or anything else.

The presence of an obvious CCTV camera may cause even the most boisterous of students to behave outside their accommodation.


A CCTV camera can play a role in identifying and bringing to justice criminals who might not otherwise have been caught. Retribution is a good thing, as it tends to stop other people from carrying out crime if they think that they will be caught.

However, as we often repeat, prevention is better than cure. If you can prevent damage to your property, or your student tenants, surely that is better than picking up the pieces afterwards?

With the technology available today, installation of CCTV is easy and inexpensive. Furthermore, it could also save you an awful lot of heartache and expense later on.
