About HOME

Finding accommodation is one of the main obstacles to international mobility, as highlighted by the HousErasmus+ research, especially for vulnerable groups (Erasmus Impact Study 2016).

In response to this issue, HOME (Home of Mobile Europeans) makes quality accommodation options available at the fingertips of mobile Europeans, increasing the quality and transparency of information about student accommodation and ensuring that it is seamlessly shared at the European level.

An Erasmus+ funded project, HOME involves partners from three relevant areas: university, students, and accommodation providers. The partners are HousingAnywhere, the Erasmus Student Network, the European University Foundation, the Polytechnic University of Milan, the International Union of Property Owners and Confia International.
