Booking a room via HousingAnywhere happens via their Secure Booking System. As a student you pay the first month rent to HousingAnywhere instead of the landlord for safe-keeping. After you arrive in your room you have a 48-hour period to check if the accommodation is as advertised. Only after this time will your money be transferred to the landlord should no issues arise. HousingAnywhere charges a small fee for this service.
TIP: If you arrive later than planned you should inform Housing Anywhere about this so that they can adjust the 48-hour period to the date of your arrival.
In case of questions about your booking or room you can contact HousingAnywhere directly by phone, mail, WhatsApp or live-chat.
