What is EDUrain?

EDUrain is a platform dedicated to helping every student attend college. We help students file for scholarships for free, and offer a free housing search through our housing engine. Additionally, we’ve built into our platform other services to make the student’s life easier, including renter’s insurance, credit building, and roommate matching! We’re constantly improving our website as we build our startup, so look out for new features that are on the way!

Why Should I Choose EDUrain?

There are countless apartment search websites out there, and we know that. That's why we try to curate our services specifically to our users as much as possible. We work with student-friendly landlords, listing agents, and brokerages to ensure our platform is free to use. We also offer financial literacy building and lease-affiliated services to help navigate our first-time-lessers through the daunting process of finding an apartment. At our core, EDUrain is a company driven by its social impact; the more students that use our platform, the more students we can help pay for their college.

Everything is… Free?

Yep! All of our services are free to use, including listing properties. We keep our services free by charging landlords a small fee once a student signs a lease with them. The only exceptions are our partnered services, which you can attain at a competitive price through our referrals.

What are Lease-Affiliated-Services?

Nine times out of ten, landlords will have a set of standard procedures in place before you sign a lease with them. Lease-Affiliated-Services help fulfill that checklist, which usually includes a credit report, renter’s insurance, and a tenant background check. Once you have all the documents you need, you can submit your application for a property to the landlord. To learn more about the lease-signing process, check out our financial literacy blogs!
