Flatmates for StudyStays

Why offer students a 'Flatmate Finder'?

Shared housing is an affordable option for students but it can be daunting. Flatmates for StudyStays is designed to make this style of housing easier and more accessible for your students.

Many students are turning to third-party sites or Facebook to find affordable share housing. By offering a flatmate finder service, you can give your students a single place to search, with peace of mind that they will be sharing with other students from your university or TAFE.

The Flatmates site caters to students who are looking for or offering shared accommodation. Whether they're alone, a couple, or part of a group there are powerful search tools to help them find flatmates that suit their lifestyle and preferences.


Slots right in to your existing StudyStays site, with a new "Flatmates" tab for students and admins.
