For university students in Nigeria, accommodation is one thing that’s constantly a pain in the neck. This is especially so for students that choose to, or have no option, but reside outside the school’s campus. Having to search for available houses that are up for rent, while trying to complete school activities is an experience students would do anything, and pay any amount just escape from.
MyUniHostels is an eCommerce platform that wants take all that burden.
The platform enables students to search and book for off-campus students’ accommodation from the comfort of their computers and smartphones. House owners who have vacant spaces that’ll suit the need of a student can also register on the platform and list their properties.
With the search feature, students get tailored results, as they are able to search based on their school, its location and their preferred accommodation type.
According to the founder, “We provide speed, ease and convenience in your search for a place to live while studying”.
He went further to hinge the potential of the business on the ever increasing students’ population, which is confronted with limited on-campus accommodation facilities across Nigeria’s tertiary institutions. This can of course give MyUniHostels a chance in the online real-estate space. But, all other real-estate eCommerce platforms still remain competitors, as they list all kinds of properties, including those that suit the need of students.
