We Build Official College Off-Campus Housing Communities

We connect students with landlords and property management groups in a closed software ecosystem in partnership with colleges, creating a transparent process for landlords and students.

A Real Partner - McKendree University

More than just roommate matching and college email verification

College Housing Strategy

We work with the college's housing strategy like at McKendree ( we work within their on-campus dorm strategy which means no off-campus support for students unless approved to live-offcampus - ask uis how) vs. just being a isting site where landlords can grab students.

Calvin Wertman
EDUrain's Differentiators

"EDUrain is a local startup that's completely focused on student housing. They not only help students find off-campus housing quickly but also reduce the department's workload, provide clear tracking throughout the entire process, and offer a credit building program. Best of all it's free!"

- Calvin Wertman, Director of Residence Life & Greek Affairs at McKendree

Official College Partnerships

We partner with colleges and build their official off-campus housing site. With the college's official backing, you'll reach far more quality students.

Calvin Wertman
Webster University

"We don't have enough room on campus to house all of our students. We even partner with other schools to try and fill the need for housing and even that is full."

- Rachael Amick, Director of Housing and Residence Life at Webster University
