What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Here at we acknowledge that whilst life has its ups, there are also the down moments.

Taking steps towards positive mental health is important to us, especially as we know that 70% of students feel lonely whilst at university – according to one of our surveys.

And we aim to provide support for our global community of students, accommodation partners and our team when they need it.

Our journey as a company to provide support for students has spanned since day one, when we looked to simplify the stressful experience of finding student accommodation.

Providing 1:1 support for students via our expert bookings team, and right up to our Together by intergenerational volunteering initiative to combat loneliness in local communities. Plus our most recent Student Heroes initiative, providing a years’ free rent to a cohort of medical students who served on the COVID-19 frontline.

From a team perspective, we are a global family – connected by our passion for cultures, hunger to learn and providing a friendly support network where we can rely on each other.

A sporty collective – led by our CEO Luke Nolan who ran an astonishing seven marathons in seven days – we understand the importance of running to help balance mental health.

That’s why we invite you to join us on the 18th November 2020, wherever in the world you are, to take part in a charity fundraising 5km.

To take part, all you need to do is:

1. Donate via this page £10/$10 (or local currency equivalent) per person wanting to take part in the Spirit Run

2. Once donated you will receive an email from with your personal running number bib (to print at home) and further details about how to get involved with pre-run prep, to sharing your selfies on the day

All donations will be split equally amongst the following charities:


Active Minds


If you have any questions, please email would like to thank our charities, accommodation partners, global network, team and our students for taking part.
