Team-ups are a way for students to meet other students who are looking
for accommodation in order to start a new share house with them.
Why team up?
For students, finding flatmates that they get along can make the difference
between just having a place to sleep and living in a house that feels like home.
Team-ups let students find great flatmates first, and then share the
work of finding the accommodation that suits everyone.
Teaming up can also give students the ability to choose a nicer house than they
would be able to afford on their own.
How does it work?
Students can tick a box on their profile
form to indicate that
they're interested in team-ups. This will allow them to match with
other students who are also interested in teaming up.
- On the student's search page, possible team ups will be displayed
based on their compatibility. Students can also do a custom team-up search
to refine their matches.
When a suitable match is found, the student can
send them a message
using the Contact section at the bottom of their profile page.
After sending a few messages back and forth the students can decide
to take the next step and arrange an in-person meet up.
The students meet up and discuss what they're looking for in a share
house. If they get along, they might decide to swap contact details
at this point so that they can coordinate more easily.
Students can then search for properties on the Properties tab of your
main off campus accommodation website
to find places they like. They can go and inspect properties
together, and if all goes well they can agree to sign a lease.
