Company description

What is Housing Anywhere?

Housing Anywhere is a startup founded by a group of students from the Rotterdam School of Management. It provides a housing platform where you can sublet your room to incoming exchange students when you go abroad on an exchange or internship.

Housing Anywhere is a platform where the demand and supply of short term accommodation can come together. It is a simple yet effective tool which increases the amount of short term accommodation available to incoming exchange students.

How did Housing Anywhere start?

Housing Anywhere was founded by students from the RSM Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in 2009. These students had problems subletting their rooms in Rotterdam when they wanted to go on an exchange semester to Singapore: none of the local Dutch students were interested in renting a room for just 4 months. At the same time, they heard from the International Office of the University that a lot of incoming international students had problems finding short-stay accommodation in Rotterdam. That is why they decided to set up a platform for short-term housing.

Housing Anywhere in numbers

In 2009 Housing Anywhere started as a student project at the Erasmus University, but by 2010, the platform expanded to most other universities in the Netherlands who saw this platform as a welcome addition to the current housing solutions they offered. In 2011, Housing Anywhere started to expand internationally: Spain, France, Germany and Denmark were added to the website. Since then the platform has continued to grow.

Currently 100 universities worldwide offer this platform as one of the housing solutions to their international students. In the past years, over 10.000 rooms have been offered from local students to international students on this platform. In addition, over the past 5 years, 0 scams or problems have been reported. This great success is thanks to the student-to-student concept of the platform.
