About Us

Our History

Houzzen was created by two friends, Martin and Josh who traveled across the world to study, live and find community. Their individual journeys led them to not only forge an amazing friendship but to enjoy the rewards of studying abroad, learning about new places and most importantly creating a vibrant and fun community of friends!

Martin and Josh created Houzzen to make life easier for students traveling abroad to study at post-secondary institutions. They know the most important first step to creating a community in a new country is finding housing that fits your lifestyle and goals.

Martin and Josh have also been landlords and know that it can be a highly rewarding experience sharing your home or renting a unit to international students. They also know the challenges finding a tenant who respects and appreciates your space like you do. Houzzen provides a platform where landlords have the ease of reviewing profiles of students committed to studying and responsible tenancy.

Houzzen creates access to housing and tenants, then you can create life long friendships.

Took on an international student

A student from Mexico connected with us and moved into our basement suite in Seattle for 4 months studying English at the university of Seattle. The profile helped a lot to identify a fit before planning.

Easy experience

I'd highly recommend the platform for landlords it is free compared to other student housing options.

It was the first time trying the platform

The experience was seamless and we got connected with a suitable student from Japan.
