This month saw the launch of our new Studentpad website, your main hub to affordable quality student accommodation. It offers a wide range of improvements, both visually and function-wise, that will facilitate your search for the right place to stay. In this post we show and explain how to use our new website for finding the information that you need.
The Welcome Page - Find your local Studentpad platform quick and easy
This is the most important site for you, since it will direct you instantly to your university's localised Studentpad platform. Just click on the map and pick your university. Alternatively, you can enter the name of your city or higher education institution into the search panel. You can also click on "List of Universities" or "List of Cities", where you can find all universities and colleges that are using our system.
