Creating a World where everyone has a 

Home Away from Home!

People at 4stay share the vision and core values of our community. We are driven by the idea that the future belongs to those who stay together and share together. We strive towards our values by helping others to find stays which they call home. We believe every great thing starts at your home!

What is 4stay? 💡

We are an online marketplace connecting students and interns with local hosts, room providers, and roommates near their destinations. 

Launched in June 2017, 4stay is the destination for students and interns looking for off-campus housing. We are creating a positive economic ecosystem that is transforming the matchmaking process of student housing rentals. We are creating possibilities for our students, schools, hosts, workplaces, campuses, and cities. 

We exist to create a better life for students by offering affordable homes in order to help as many students as possible. 


Our Mission

We thrive to build a medium to long-term housing platform of trust, where people find a home away from home anywhere in the world! 

Our Vision

Creating a world where everyone has a home away from home

Our Story

In 2007 and 2008, founders Akobir and Faridun came to the United States to pursue their education. One of the greatest challenges they faced as students were finding housing. Dorms were full or too expensive, apartment managers wanted to lock in a one-year lease, classified ad web pages weren't secure and off-campus roommate matching was a disaster. Guess what? Hundreds and thousands of students are still going through the same challenges. They seized the opportunity to help students one by one, doing it the hard way – offline! By the time of its inception, the founding team had helped more than 10,000 students in 15 different states representing 30+ countries.

In June 2017, 4stay launched as an online marketplace to help even more students. It has been backed by some of the same Silicon Valley investors who invested in Dropbox, PayPal, and LendingClub.
