Collegedunia and Stanza Living partner to make search for student housing easier

Collegedunia, India’s leading admission-assistance portal has partnered with Stanza Living, India’s largest managed accommodation company, to facilitate student accommodation discovery during the new academic season. Collegedunia, which provides comprehensive information and detailed reviews about education opportunities across more than 27,000 colleges, 7000+ courses, 350+ exams under various streams, enables students to make better decisions about their higher education opportunities. Through this partnership with Stanza Living, a key element of their decision-making – finding high-quality living arrangements for hassle-free college days – will be conveniently resolved. Students visiting Collegedunia will be able to browse through Stanza Living’s rich inventory across popular education hubs like Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Vijayanagar, Ahmedabad, Pune, Jaipur, Bhopal and more; and discover the options best suited to their diverse lifestyle needs, preferred location and budget choices. Collegedunia is visited by over 20 million users monthly to get solutions to admission and college-related queries. Hostel search has been one of the top three search queries (along with courses and admissions) on their portal, which they typically address by sharing on-campus hostel related information collected from official university and college sources. However, with limited campus inventory available, a majority of migrant students are left to fend for housing options by themselves. According to a report by top real estate consulting firm Knight Frank, only 20% of the current demand for student housing is fulfilled by university-operated supply. As a result, students are forced to settle for unstandardized PGs, hostels, and rental housing options, where focus on infrastructure and service quality is limited. With this partnership, students can get access to curated accommodation options from Stanza Living’s vast inventory of 70000+ beds. Spread across 22+ cities, these residences have been certified ‘Safe Place to Stay’ and ‘Safe Place to Cook’ by leading quality audit firm Equinox Labs, making them a viable consumer choice.
