Housing Anywhere is a housing platform that was founded by Niels van Deuren where people can rent out rooms to international students. It originally started as a platform where outgoing exchange students can rent out their rooms when they go abroad. Incoming exchange students can rent these rooms. Today, it’s a global platform where demand & supply of rooms for international students meet each other. The company has 127 partner universities in 22 countries.
It launches in university cities together with the local university (who subsequently becomes a paying partner in order to supply its international student base with housing options) and moves on to take a fee from the tenant and the landlord. In contrast to many other rental players this company is a pure classified player meaning they just put the tenant and the land lord in touch, whereas others get into the agent role providing contract, cleaning, legal etc.
