Ted Nelson once said, “Making things easy is hard”. This is something our Head of Tech, Mr Nikhil Soni might agree with. But despite all the late nights and frequent tweaks, he definitely takes pride in the fact that our latest proprietary feature – “Compare” is sure to revolutionize the way students identity, analyse and secure their ideal student accommodation. Being one of the leading prop-tech student accommodation platforms, it is essential that we keep evolving with time. With Compare, we’ve distinguished ourselves from our competitors by providing students with this one-of-a-kind feature. 

What Is Compare?

Compare is our flagship product that allows students to compare 350,000+ rooms on our website based on 80+ parameters. With Compare, you can select your ideal student accommodation based on “room types“, “amenities”, “locality”, “distance from university”, “benefits”, “perks”, and much more. It is easy to use, incredibly informative and you can even share your shortlisted properties with your friends and family. 

How Do I Use Compare?

To use Compare simply click on the Compare option located on the top right-hand side of our website or simply go to

Once you’ve reached the compare page, you will see a search bar and 4 blank panels. 

To start comparing properties, all you need to do is simply type in your “university”, “college” or “city” in the search bar. Compare will auto-populate the 4 panels with the best student accommodations. You then have free rein to add or remove properties based on your preference.

After this, you need to select your preferred room configuration and voila! You will have a detailed comparison of the 4 best properties based on your input. Important information such as “price”, “distance from university”, “guarantor”, “pet friendly” and much more will be displayed right in front of you. There’s also a “Facility Score” out of 60 that takes into consideration all the amenities and facilities of the student accommodation and gives it a score accordingly. The better the property is, the better is the Facility Score. 

We are confident that our Compare tool will help you find your ideal student accommodation. But on the off chance that you don’t and are confused about which property best suits your needs, you can share your shortlisted properties with your friends and family via WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook

There’s also a nifty “Experience” section that displays all the useful blogs we’ve published so far. These blogs revolve around the daily lives of students and contain a host of important information that can certainly benefit students. 

Do I Have To Pay To Use Compare?
