There are nearly 2.3 million students in
London. With prestigious institutions serving on its lands such as Imperial
College, UCL, University of Edinburgh, University of Manchester, King's
College, etc, the city welcomes thousands of new students
everywhere, including a huge percentage of overseas students. Naturally, there
is an ever present demand for cheap accommodation for students.
Apart from that, overseas students may not have
the requisite knowledge, which place would be ideal for lodging due to
unfamiliarity with the locale. Adjusting in the new culture, a new university,
making friends, finding classes and other such things are overwhelming enough, along
with the added pressure of searching for a best student accommodation.
Enlisting the help of estate agents is the most
common mechanism of room-hunting for students. Students often resort to
outsourcing the pressure of it, instead of dealing with it themselves. But
simply dumping the work on the agents, in actuality, does not really work. They
still have to check out all the stops, and still make the decision, which again
requires being familiar with the locale. An estate agent therefore,
effectively, only hooks you up with the property listings (riding along with
you to vacant properties in the very least). So basically, by enlisting the
help of agents, students have to pay hefty amounts for a work that can be done
for free, pretty easily too, one might add.
We seek to eliminate this
parting-away-of-dear-money process for students, by introducing a pocket
friendly mechanism that actually resides in your pocket. After all, why spend
money on a job, if the job can be done for free? Why spend time on a dull job,
when you can spend that precious time on the more exciting things, say making
friends exploring your university.
