Housemates CEO Lydia Jones

A new powerful booking engine for businesses looking to offer fast and secure student accommodation has today been launched by Housemates.

Aiming to disrupt and revolutionise the student housing sector, Housemates Connect API enables businesses to easily access and integrate with the company’s proven and growing platform.

Students from over 20 countries already use Manchester-based Housemates’ platform, which currently offers more than 1.2 million beds across the UK, Ireland and Australia.

Lydia Jones, CEO of Housemates, said: “We are thrilled to be launching the Housemates Connect API, which represents a major step forward in our efforts to provide innovative, tech-driven solutions for the student accommodation market.

“With the Housemates Connect API, we are providing businesses with a powerful new tool that makes it easier than ever to access and integrate with our platform, enabling them to provide their users with the best possible student accommodation experience.”

Housemates, founded by entrepreneur Jones in 2020 has an office in Bangalore, India alongside its Manchester HQ.

During 2022 Housemates, known widely as an instant booking student accommodation marketplace, launched two features named Payments+ and Housemates Tag.

The company has been backed by GC Angels and has become a leading provider of student accommodation solutions in a fast growing and competitive sector.

Jones says Housemates Connect API represents a first for the sector: “Whether businesses are looking to integrate property search functionality or enable bookings through their own platform, Housemates Connect API makes it easy,” she said. “This highly intuitive booking engine is a breakthrough moment in the student accommodation marketplace and enables businesses to unlock additional revenue, paves the way for further growth for Housemates and benefits all our stakeholders.

“During 2023 we are set to make more exciting announcements that will propel our solutions and offering to another new level.”
