Vilnius is the economic, political and social capital of Lithuania, known in Europe for its history, culture and beauty. Not surprisingly, UNESCO protects the entire historic centre of the Lithuanian city as heritage of outstanding universal value.
Every year, more than 1,000 international students move to Vilnius for a semester abroad and look for housing in the Lithuanian capital. Now, they can find their new accommodation in Vilnius on HousingAnywhere.com, the largest housing platform for exchange and international students.
Housing Anywhere is a peer-to- peer platform that connects the demand and supply of housing for international students all around the globe. The project started in 2009 from a student-to-student initiative where outgoing students rented out their room to incoming students and it is now an established organisation working in close collaboration with more than 130 universities and active in 500+ cities in the world. The mission is to help international students to find their new accommodation abroad in an easy and safe way.
The concept is very simple: for all incoming exchange students in a city, there are some outgoing who are temporarily leaving. Putting these two in direct contact, HousingAnywhere.com allows the outgoing students to legally sublet their rooms and avoid double rent and the incoming students or interns to find a trustworthy place in their new city. Moreover, the platform makes sure you find what best satisfies your needs by including also listings from private landlords, housing corporations and host families.
Thanks to a secure booking system, every accommodation you find on HousingAnywhere.com is secure and free of scammers. First, the Housing Anywhere team verifies every room that is published on the website through five steps verification process, pushing away scammers and fake rooms. Secondly, the first month (plus a one time 25% of commission) is not paid directly to the landlord, but is kept in a safe bank account and transferred to the landlord only 48 hours after you have actually moved in and checked that everything is how it was previously agreed. If the room is not as described in the contract), you get your money back! In this way, you can get everything arranged in advance and move to your new city ready for a new adventure.
