CHOOSING a student let and matching up with like-minded housemates – is perhaps one of the biggest decisions over 30,000 learners make every year in Plymouth.
North Hill based Clever Student Lets have come up with a nouveau way of helping students with a ‘House Match’ event that works on a ‘yellow and blue card system’, says sales and service manager James Deacon.
Mr Deacon, said: “You have two colours at the networking event where yellow is for looking for a housemate, and blue looking for a house.”
“Opposite colours attract, but our sales team will be there to help students’ along the way. It’s a chance to have fun, meet other students, and the clever way to find a housemate.”
“This is the second year we are running this very successful event, and last year was great fun with around 50 students attending, and about 8 additions to friendship groups created.”
“A big problem that any student faces is being placed into accommodation with just anyone – however, we make sure at our House Match event or, even on a one-to-one viewing – our potential tenants not only choose a great house, but also focus on great people too.”
“Matching people not just on a course, but getting a feel for the personality and lifestyle as well.”
A few of the House Matcher tenants from last year are now booking full houses together this year, and it is a great feeling to know we got it right – and created a friendship group, said Mr Deacon.
Nationally recognised Clever Student Lets is Plymouth’s leading provider of student accommodation and recently launched a Chinese designated website.
The next House Match event is on the 30th March, at 6pm, at the Roundabout, 2-4 Drake’s Circus, Plymouth.
