Campusboard is a location-based marketplace that helps the 2.4 million university students in the UK find accommodation, trade textbooks and any other unwanted items with other students.
Our Flatshare Service matches students looking for accommodation to those that have a spare room. Since its launch, students have listed over £4,000,000 worth of properties, and another £7,000,000 in combined annual rent budget has been listed by those looking for a place to stay.
