Online PR News – 02-September-2013 – Aberystwyth – YourFlatmate.co.uk is a new student-dedicated accommodation platform for flatmate-finding, student-trading and house-finding. This web platform will be launching on the 9th of September 2013 at the Welsh University Aberystwyth, with the aim of assisting those Universities with increasing number of issues in regards to private accommodation for students.

(YourFlatmate.co.uk offers an online platform which, unlike other accommodation platforms, is totally focused on students and aims to help students and their parents not worry about accommodation from as early as when they are applying to go to a UK university.)

What does YourFlatmate do?

YourFlatmate offers a platform where students can find flatmates to live with in their area based on their own preference. Alternatively, the platform could be used as another communication medium for students already living together. This helps students that are looking to get into a larger house and need extra housemates in order to secure the accommodation.

This platform also helps students that find it difficult to communicate and socialize to find people to live with. It is an opportunity for postgraduate or international students to live with people according to their preference.
(The flatmate-finding system makes use of a powerful searching and matching algorithm which helps to pin-point potential flatmates easily based on a user’s preference.)

YourFlatmate works with major estate agents in a university area as well as university-recommended landlords in order to provide one fully up-to-date list of all legally registered and suitable student accommodation. This list is accompanied by pictures and video clips (where applicable) of housing, more than estate agents might normally reveal. The list is also accompanied by crime-rate reports (where applicable), and by reviews from previous tenants.

YourFlatmate also provide a safe trading system where students can trade unwanted housewares with other students. Other services provided include accommodation expert articles, accompanied by unbiased reviews of estate agents within university areas. This aims towards creating awareness, in order that students can learn more about with whom they are signing contracts.

(Inspiration?)

This service is being launched by a computing student that travelled from Nigeria in order to study in the UK. He however struggled to find people to live with during the course of university study; many estate agents in particular insisted that he found other people he would be living with before getting back in touch. This was not an easy task and after thorough research, it was discovered that the problem was a common one faced by students, and considered by their family.

YourFlatmate.co.uk launches on the 9th of September 2013 at Aberystwyth. Ideally, after launch the service would spread across other UK universities, thereby making flatmate-finding and student-homelessness less of an issue for UK students.
