LOOKING FOR A DATE?

Fed up of being on your own? Have loads of friends on your course but don't want to date any of them? Find it hard to meet other students on different courses or at different institutions in the same city? Want a safe way to meet other genuine students? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this site could be for you. When you first register select that you are looking for "A date" and then after verifying your email address log in and go to "Edit Profile" to complete your profile and start searching for that special person.  

Your profile will only be seen by other students looking for a date*.

 

LOOKING FOR A FLAT?

Finding a suitable flat to share whether it be for a year, a term or even just for a few days can be difficult whilst you are a student.  Connect2Students.com aims to connect students who have a room available in their flat or home with students who are looking for somewhere to stay.  When you first register select you are looking for "A flat".  After verifying your email address log in and go to "Edit Profile" and choose what type of room you are looking for from the following options:

  • Single Room
  • Double Room
  • Twin Room to share
  • Room with an ensuite
  • Room for a few days
  • Room with a family
  • Flat for a group of students to share

 

The database will then show you profiles of students who have a room available.  By doing a "Detailed Student Search" you can look for students in your area that have the sort of accommodation you are looking for.

Your profile will only be seen by students looking for a flatmate.*

 

LOOKING FOR A FLATMATE?

Do you have a room available in your flat or home for students?  If so you may want to quickly fill the room if you are liable for the rent for the whole flat.  Perhaps you are a mature student and have a spare room you want to rent out to help pay the mortgage or just rent out for a few days to earn some an additional income.  Or perhaps you are going away to study in another city and your parents want to rent out your room to a student coming to study in your city during term time.  Whatever the reason Connect2Students.com aims to help connect students who have accommodation available and want to advertise it free of charge to genuine students who are looking for somewhere to stay whether it be for a year, a term or just a few days.  When you first register select you are looking for "A flatmate" and then after verifying your email address log in and go to "Edit Profile" and then select what you have available from the following:

  • Single room available
  • Double room available
  • Twin room to share available

  • Room for a few days available
  • Room with a family available
  • Flat for a group of students to share

 

Your profile will only be seen by students looking for a flat.*

 

LOOKING FOR A TRAVEL COMPANION?

Want someone to travel with over the vacation periods? Want to take a year off after your course to travel the world and have a working holiday but don't want to go on your own? Are you going abroad to study and would like to find other students travelling to the same place? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then Connect2Students.com can connect you with other students wanting to travel to the same place.  When you register select you are looking for "A travel companion". Once you have verified your email address go to the "Edit Profile" section and select from the drop down menu in the "Travel for" section where, or the reason why, you want to travel.  There are many options to choose from covering many countries and many reasons for travel such as for a working holiday, a Gap Year, an Erasmus Exchange, Elective Study/Research etc.  The database will allow you to search and read profiles of other students who are looking to travel to the same place or travel for the same reason as yourself.
