    Published on September 30, 2022

    The company has listed over 3 Million+ beds on its platform globally and aims to reach out to over 800K students from across the globe

    UniAcco, largest global prop-tech student accommodation platform announced the expansion of its services to the Australian market today. The platform provides students with premium housing facilities located in the vicinity of their universities and colleges. In the first month of the launch, the company has listed over 150k+ beds across cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane and plans to expand to other cities including Canberra. They aim to reach out to over 800k students from across the globe this year.

    As per recent data shared by Australian Trade and Investment Commission, since the border re-opened in mid-December 2021 until July 22, 2022, over 2.60 lakh student visa holders arrived in Australia. Also, the country is one of the most popular study abroad destinations with over 7 Lakh foreign students from across the globe enrolling in its universities and vocational schools. Owing to this high volume, finding quality student housing in Australia in a preferred location that is near to the university is really challenging. Many Indian students are of the view that finding a good accommodation can be immensely difficult considering various other challenges like cost and location. In view of addressing this, UniAcco aims to provide properties that are verified by student housing experts and top real estate developers to guarantee a top-notch living experience and a stress-free university experience. The cost of these properties includes utility expenses like Wi-Fi, room cleaning service and other amenities like gym, swimming pool, free, laundry, etc. Students can choose from a wide range of properties which are well connected to universities in these cities including flats, studio apartments, private apartments, among others.

    Commenting on this, Mr Amit Singh, Founder, UniAcco, stated, “Finding quality student accommodation in a foreign country can be incredibly concerning, especially post Covid with renewed consideration of health and hygiene factors. After the US and the UK, Australia is the third-highest higher education destination, attracting students from across the world. While this indicates the potential of the market, it also directs towards the stress on quality student accommodation facilities. Our aim is to bridge this gap, offering students a tailored solution to meet all their accommodation needs without having to liaise with multiple parties. Within three years of inception, UniAcco has become the largest student accommodation marketplace in the UK, with this success, we aim to expand to other popular education destinations to ease the accommodation experience for students. In order to achieve this we have listed over 3 Million+ beds on the platform globally and aim to reach out to over 800K students from across the globe.”

    UniAcco has reached out to over 200k students this year and has a presence across 10+ countries including the UK, Canada, Ireland, and France among others. They plan to expand operations in the USA and other European countries in 2023. An array of students who plan to study away from their homes find it difficult to start their journey owing to a lack of information on quality accommodation, funds, scholarships etc. Subsequently, those who acquire funds struggle with finding just the right accommodation without any contacts in the destination country. To ease the higher education journey, the company has built the three services UniAcco, UniScholarz and UniCreds, on a unified platform to help students achieve their higher education goals seamlessly.
