What press says about us?

Answer your questions.

Is Housemates free to use?

We don’t charge additional service fees to students as this is against our brand values - meaning the price you see displayed on a property is the exact price you will pay.

What if I want to cancel on a property/booking?

Thanks to our payment system students can cancel bookings and receive refunds - if you experience any issues, please contact

How do deposits work on Housemates?

All student deposits are held in what is called Escrow; this means that when booking an accommodation the money is held with a trusted third-party under FCA regulation to secure everyone in the conversation.
