If we were to help renters one-on-one, each of our team members might be lucky to help 10 people each day. Thanks to our search technology, we helped an average of 2,740 renters per day over the last 12-months (Google Analytics 2022-2023). With the support of our locally branded Student Guides, comprehensive FAQ section, user-friendly search technology, and detailed apartment listings, we empower renters to navigate the leasing process independently, from their initial search to submitting applications.
Finding an apartment that matches one's lifestyle and budget can lead to happier, healthier lives. A well-suited apartment home fosters comfort, contentment, and engagement in activities that bring joy. When housing costs are manageable, stress is reduced, allowing for resource allocation towards other important aspects of life. Securing an ideal apartment empowers individuals to create a foundation for a balanced and fulfilling life.
FOR Local Universities and Colleges
ApartmentsFor is a connecting piece between student renters, off-campus housing options, and universities. We passionately advocate for the off-campus housing choices listed on our platform and dedicate significant effort to building strong relationships with key departments, including New Student Orientation and International Student Resource Centers, at local universities. We utilize our marketing budget to be present at on-campus events including housing fair and new student orientation. Additionally, we take any opportunity to donate our money or time to on-campus organizations such as Greek life, clubs, and professional organizations.
Our goal is to establish and maintain each of our local brands as a trusted resource among both the local university renter populations and the universities themselves by offering resources created by students, for students. Through this approach, we provide valuable assistance and support to students in their search for suitable off-campus housing options while fostering positive collaborations with universities.
We are constantly renewing our connection to local Universities by hiring current students for 1-2 semester, paid internship programs. Internships are a key part of our company history, with many of our current full-time team members having started with us as interns themselves. These interns "keep us young," helping our team understand the current trends, wants, and needs of students in the markets we serve. Meanwhile, we are providing paid internship opportunities for college students that promote personal and professional development.

Together, we strive to be a connecting piece between apartment communities, renters, and the local community, doing our part to help that everyone find their ideal home and experience the true essence of community living.
