About Us

TenantU was born out of frustration. A frustration with the lack of resources available to students to help them with transition between living on and off-campus. No more university housing being assigned to you means you need to find it yourself. But, how? We’re here to make finding home easier, wherever that may be.

TenantU is a one-stop-shop for finding a place to live and managing everything else that goes into being a tenant, so you can live your life. We are a community of tenants and landlords working together to make tenancy simple. With an easy to use property search, landlord portal, rent pay and messaging app, landlords can post their properties for prospective tenants and seamlessly interact with their current tenants. We understand your frustrations because we are you. We know what it’s like walking up and down the streets collecting landlord numbers. We know that there can be a break in the lines of communication between landlords and tenants. We didn’t like it, so we set out to fix it.
Life. Easier. Welcome to TenantU.
