Business affiliates

Provide student accommodation as a service without the cost.

Why business affiliates

We understand that many student brands and education platforms have the network to offer accommodation and find the current lead generation accommodation platforms hard to use with issues covering tracking traffic, bookings and commission owed.

At Housemates, we’re on a mission to make booking student accommodation an enjoyable experience and help students in as many places as possible book fast and securely online with the peace of mind.

Our booking engine and affiliate offering allows student brands and education platforms to offer accommodation services without technical integration costs and payment issues and instead have complete transparency regarding their student traffic and success.


Add value

Help students within your network secure accommodation - fast, secure and 100% online.

Track traffic

Have a complete overview of all student traffic and conversions.

Earn money

Get paid directly into your business bank account for each booking made.

How it works


We create each affiliate their own subdomain i.e affiliate/, as we see every affiliate as a strong partnership and understand the importance of brand and trust in relation to the students conversion.

Co-branded versions of Housemates

Each affiliate subdomain links to their co-branded version of Housemates - leveraging both brands and ensuring all students that we and the affiliate are working together to help make student moves smooth.


Every affiliate gains access to a dashboard where they can track all student traffic and commission owed.


All affiliates and their students have both an Account Manager and Customer Support available at all times.
