SYDNEY, Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — UniAcco, the largest global prop-tech student accommodation platform announced the expansion of its services to the Australian market today. The platform provides students with premium housing located in the vicinity of their universities and colleges. In the first month of the launch, the company has listed over 150k+ beds across cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane and plans to expand to other cities including Canberra. They aim to reach out to over 800k students from across the globe this year.
Australia is one of the most popular study abroad destinations with over 7 lakh foreign students enrolling in its universities and vocational schools. Owing to this high volume, finding quality student housing in Australia in a preferred location is really challenging. In view of addressing this, UniAcco aims to provide properties that are verified by student housing experts and top real estate developers to guarantee a top-notch living experience and a stress-free university experience. The cost of these properties includes utility expenses like wifi, room cleaning service and other amenities like gym, swimming pool, free laundry, etc. Students can choose from a wide range of properties in these cities including flats, studio apartments, private apartments, among others.
Commenting on this, Mr. Amit Singh, Founder, UniAcco, stated, "Within three years of inception, UniAcco has become the largest student accommodation marketplace in the UK, with this success, we aim to expand to other popular education destinations. With 37 government-funded universities, two private universities, and a handful of other specialised institutions, Australia is a popular study abroad option among students. After the US and the UK, the nation boasts the third-highest population of international students worldwide. This indicates the potential of the market hence our aim was to bridge the accommodation gap as students may find it difficult to get quality accommodation in this huge market. In just a span of one month we have partnered with some prominent property managers like Scape, UniLodge, Campus Living Villages, our aim is to provide over 1 million nights to students coming from across the globe."
