Yes, it is possible, though rent payments may not be included in every scoring model. So depending on what you need credit for, the lender may or may not use a score that includes your rent payment history. Take a look at this page from Experian: http://www.experian.com/rentbureau/rental-payment.html

Essentially, they say to have you and your landlord sign up at a site like RentTrack or PayYourRent. These companies allow you to set up electronic rent payments, but then also report those payments to the credit bureaus.

However, there may be fees involved, so be sure to shop around for the best option.
