When will I be able to start using Places4Students?
Places4Students is now live! You may start using it at any time. Landlords have one month to take advantage of the free listings promotion.
Can I still list my property on CUE’s website free of charge?
No, we have closed down our internal registry as of June 23, 2021. Places4Students is offering CUE landlords the opportunity to post their listings free of charge for one month.
Why is CUE partnering with Places4Students?
We know that housing is one of the most crucial parts of succeeding as a university student, and as a human. Our partnership with Places4Students will allow us to provide better service to students who will be living off-campus. The Places4Students website will provide a variety of benefits to our students and landlords that will save them time and improve the quality of listings. Landlords can highlight more aspects of their properties and students can make more informed decisions because of built-in features of the Places4Students platform such as map details, amenity icons, photo uploads, floor plans, and even virtual reality tours!
What fees are associated with this change and are they worth it?
There are no new fees for students, they are able to use all the services for free.
Landlords will now pay $14.99 for a general listing and $24.99 if they would like for their listing to be “featured”. There are also reduced rates for multi-unit listings. CUE has funded a down payment to Places4Students so these are reduced rates from standard on the website.
We thought carefully about this change. In talking to Places4Students, we are confident that the value added by their services will be beyond worth the initial cost for listings. More information about the benefits to landlords can be found here. They also provide information for landlords on protecting themselves from scams which we have seen some increase of during COVID-19.
Is it safe to post my listing on Places4Students?
Places4Students is widely used in North America as a listings service for post-secondary institutions. You may choose to visit this page of their website which includes information about scam/fraud protection. There are risks associated with posting your listing anywhere online, including Places4Students or CUE’s webpage.
