Off-Campus Housing


The housing market on Grand Cayman is strong and presents many opportunities for student tenants to find homes.

Most rental units come furnished (i.e., stocked with standard hard and soft furnishings, such as beds, tables, appliances, couches, window dressings, etc.) or fully furnished (i.e., everything but your own clothes and personal belongings is included). Utility costs (e.g., for electricity, water, etc.) are expensive compared to U.S. standards. 

Rental rates are generally highest in the Seven Mile Beach, George Town and South Sound areas. Security deposits are common and usually equal one month's rent, so be sure to figure this into your budget.

Housing becomes increasingly difficult to find if you have young children or pets living with you or if you prefer to smoke inside. Landlords and property managers have the right to refuse to rent to you for these reasons.
