Fredericton and Saint John


Matching students with hosts in the community — a true win-win

The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is proud to partner with SpacesShared, a platform that pairs students looking for a place to live with adults who have spare bedrooms in their home and would like to earn extra income by renting them out.

What’s different about SpacesShared

SpacesShared simplifies and enhances the homesharing experience for students and hosts by using a sophisticated algorithm to create matches based on living preferences, location and personality.

They have also considered the ease of connecting hosts and students, deciding on a mutually beneficial contract and its terms and handling rent payments.

Hosts may find significant benefits in having an extra set of hands around the house. In addition to companionship, students may be able to help with tech support and light assistance with household chores.

Safety is top of mind for SpacesShared. Hosts and students can rest easy knowing that their match has undergone a criminal background check and had their identity verified by the SpacesShared team.

SpacesShared also conducts regular feedback from both hosts and students once they are matched to ensure everything is working out well. Members can also reach out to the customer success team with their questions at any time.
