How it works.
- "Settling into Singapore was so much easier thanks to XchangeHousing! Prior to contacting the team, I found it stressful finding an apartment and housemates as I had never been to Singapore, so I was unsure about the process of renting an apartment and where was the best place to live. However, my problems were easily resolved as XchangeHousing sorted it all out for me before I got to Singapore. Thanks to the team I was able to stay in an amazing apartment, have cool housemates and be constantly updated with the latest events throughout my exchange! I would highly recommend to any exchange student not knowing where to start in Singapore to get in contact with the XchangeHousing team!"

- "My stay with XchangeHousing was perfect. The whole process is super easy, so you will have more time to travel and enjoy your stay! At first, the offer just seemed to be too good to be true, especially when you consider the local regulation on short-term rentals. Looking back, I must say that my doubt was completely ungrounded. Majella picked me up at the airport and brought me straight to the condo, which was only recently built. With all the amenities, it felt more like vacation in a nice hotel. It’s definitely the best way for exchange students to find accommodation!"

- "I would really recommend XchangeHousing. My experience was great, they provide great service and they satisfied every request. Furthermore, they helped me when I arrived in Singapore, offering a pick-up in the airport; as well as storing my luggage when I left Singapore for my travels after my studies. Our relationship was something like a friendship."
Luca Castagnino - Milan, Italy - SMU Exchange Student 2016
- "I would highly recommend XchangeHousing because they make the whole renting process so much easier. It is complicated and difficult when it comes to renting houses in a foreign country where you are unfamiliar with the relevant regulations and locations etc. All you have to do is apply online and provide the relevant information to them, and they will get everything solved for you. The best thing is that you will be able to secure your place even before arriving in Singapore, so you can check in straight away when you arrive. It is also important to have someone in a foreign country who knows the country much better than you do, so you won't panic. XchangeHousing has the most friendly, responsive and helpful staffs."
Ryana Hung - Sydney, Australia - NTU Exchange Student 2016
- "I was unable to get campus housing and chanced upon XchangeHousing through Luisa, another exchange student who found out about XchangeHousing from NUS. Truthfully, I was afraid that it might be a scam and there would be no one picking me up at the airport when I arrive in Singapore and I would be homeless even though I paid the application fees. But, thank god they were there, I was so relieved when I saw Majella holding a sign with my name on it at the airport, haha."
Pasi Töyräs - Helsinki, Finland - NUS Exchange Student 2015
- "Thankfully through the NUS website, I found out about XchangeHousing for exchange students. Loved the warm welcome from the XchangeHousing team and the airport pickup - really appreciated that, as I didn't have to worry about how to get to the apartment from the airport with my luggage. (Sorry for slightly damaging your car when I was loading up my luggage, Majella!) Definitely a top recommendation for future exchange students."
Alfons Montserrat - Alcanar, Spain - NUS Exchange Student 2015
- "XchangeHousing was reliable and efficient in helping me find awesome roommates and the perfect apartment. I wasn't sure at first whether to book with XchangeHousing but after speaking to other exchange students and Majella & Hamza and seeing them being featured on NUS' website, I decided to take a leap of faith. Would definitely book with them again if I had the chance to do another exchange in Singapore! Missing the best roommates and Singapore so much!"
Luisa Abott - Palma De Mallorca, Spain - NUS Exchange Student 2015
- "XchangeHousing helped to make the process of finding an apartment in Singapore a lot easier. Despite some minor complications during my stay, I would definitely recommend the service if you want to find a great apartment with amazing roommates, easily!"
Eva Straka - Vienna, Austria - NTU Exchange Student 2015
- "The whole XchangeHousing process was just so simple. Everything was online, just had to follow instructions and I had my roommates and my apartment booked a month before landing in Singapore. I seriously advise anyone coming as an exchange student to use their service."
Thomas Lalonde - Montréal, Canada - SMU Exchange Student 2011-2012
- "Just the fact that I went straight from the airport to my apartment is an amazing thing in itself. I met all my roommates before hand and we had no issues to book our apartment online. All in all, had a great time during my semester and in part thanks to XchangeHousing."
