Qualifying students and really their parents, and then getting everyone’s applications in order and then their lease signed leads to a lot of headaches. The fact that MyRentHero also has work orders and direct communication tools is a great added benefit to make my life easier.

Access qualified tenants with no effort and streamline your property management duties through the MyRentHero platform.
MyRentHero is a platform 100% focused on helping students (and parents) find their off-campus housing. We’ve created a mobile (iOS and Android) experience and web app that aggregates all of the properties around your university, we’ve built advanced search filters, and then we allow you to schedule tours, message the property, apply online, and manage everything for off-campus living through us.
Easy, start searching for your perfect house/apartment/room. You can do this online or through our app. You can download the app in the App Store , or in the Google Play Store. Take a look at some of our blog posts on tips for the best way to find your new housing.
Once you create an account, you can start scheduling tours, or just messaging the property for more information. When you’ve found the perfect spot, you can start the application process, if the property has enabled that feature. That’s where you’ll add your roommates’ email, your parents’ email (if the property requires a guarantor) and submit your rental application. If the property doesn’t take applications through us, you will work directly with the property to submit your application.
Nada. Creating an account is free. Searching is free. Messaging landlords and scheduling tours is free. Should you submit your application through us, there is a charge to run your (and your guarantor’s) credit score and this is our cost with TransUnion to electronically and automatically produce a credit report that is bank-vault-proof.
Great question. Unfortunately we don’t have the perfect answer. It varies campus by campus. But here’s what we can tell you: it’s all about location. Properties within walking distance to campus usually fill up first, then the nicer, more amenity-laden properties fill up next. As a rule, you should have a general idea by the end of Fall, and then start touring / applying early spring semester.
There are a lot of tools out there to help you find a roommate. We suggest finding someone that you are compatible with. Notice we didn’t say your BFF. Take a look at our blog post here for tips on how and where to find a roommate. Once you’ve found that roommate, make sure you both are aligned on the expectations of living together.
