About Us

As parents we know how difficult it is to find subletters for apartments when college students study abroad. Many parents, including us, are left spending thousands of dollars on unused bedrooms in beautiful rental apartments. Students heading off to Europe, Asia, Central and South America for their life changing semesters need help finding subletters.

We realized these stressful and financial burdens are on the minds of many parents and students and we created this platform for you.
