How Does Our Service Work?

We provide an international listing service for scholars to find or offer temporary accommodations. Members can post their property for home rental, exchange, house sitting or sharing and can also register as a tenant and/or house sitter. Each member establishes his or her own home listing price and terms of agreement. We offer many resources and tips to facilitate this process.

As a registered member of our community, you will be able to save your search results, create a list of favorites, keep track of queries, leave feedback about your experience, and much more. You can choose the extent of personal information you would like to share on your profile and your email will only be revealed to whomever you choose to contact.

How Much Does It Cost?

We offer low listing fees for academics to use our services. We feel it's important for all scholars to have the opportunity to travel and share their ideas.

Posting a home offered listing is US$45 for academics (US$65 for non-academics). It is free for academics to post a home wanted listing (US$20 for non-academics). Listings remain active for up to 12 months, can be updated at any time, and are renewable. We accept payments in many currencies.

Made-a-Match Fees of $50 for each successful match are crucial to maintaining our reasonable listing fees and keeping our website free of advertising.
