Do I need to have the Student sign a contract?

No, they already agree to the Website Terms and Conditions, and your House Rules when they make a booking.

Students are required to agree to our Website  Terms and Conditions when they sign up with SRS. As a Host you can set your House Rules / special conditions on your profile so that this information is visible to the Student when browsing the site, by submitting a booking request Students agree to abide by any special conditions you have listed so there’s no need for you to have a Student sign a separate contract with you.

Other Providers may have different requirements and this will be outlined during the application process.
