  • DSS stands for Department of Social Security, an old phrase which simply means anyone on government benefits. In the adverts you mention, the landlord is only looking for tenants in employment and is not willing to accept those who are not.

  • It means that people on benefits are not accepted

  • It's a government agency that helps people entitled to government housing benefit. A tenant under government housing benefit relies on DSS for their rent. It's not related to students alone as anyone could be under housing benefit.
