HousingAnywhere provides a student-to-student contact platform for surenting rooms and apartments, specifically targeting international students. This website is free to use, operating on a student-to-student basis. If you are not sure whether you are allowed to rent out your room, please ask permission from your landlord in advance.

If you are considering subrenting and turn to advertisement websites, please be careful and never pay anything in advance. Unfortunately fraud is not uncommon. If you are feeling insecure about a subrent lease, please feel free to consult our student lawyers.
