About

Off-Campus Housing 101 is a network of rental websites the U.S. and the Caribbean. Our database showcases rental properties of various types such as apartments, houses, condos, basement suites, executive, shared/roommate accomodation, furnished, mobile homes and townhouses. We were the first internet listing service in Canada to pioneer a new and improved way to advertise and search rental properties: online rather than in newspapers and magazines.

In addition, we were the first internet listing service in the U.S. to offer an international off-campus housing solution utilizing our Off Campus Housing 101 search engine. We assist landlords in reaching out to students from over 100 different colleges and universities and help students find a home away from home.

Since our humble begginings back in 1998, we have always provided your first 30 day listing free so you can try-before-you-buy. This allows you to realize the value of our service before you are asked for a fee. We now have thousands of satisfied long-term landlords with over 15 years of business with us. Although many of our services are automated, we have always maintained a toll-free customer hotline for landlords requiring additional help with their listings or accounts and custom services for our larger property managment companies.

Off-Campus Housing 101 provides the most up-to-date database of rental properties. All listings are added and maintained by the landlord or property owners themselves, to ensure the listing are as current as possible.

For a nominal fee, Off-Campus Housing 101 provides enormous exposure through many partners working together for maximum exposure. Since all the sites are connected based on geography, it doesn't matter which site you visit. Our network is even partnered with over 100 North American colleges and universities, expanding your overall exposure.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our service.

Founded in 1998, ECOM Media Group Inc (ECOM) is an established and reputable leader in the online vacancy rental advertising market. Since day one, our core vision and guiding principle has remained constant: finding, developing, and implementing programs and products that make it possible for landlords and renters to find each other in the most efficient manner possible. In striving to fulfill our vision and goals, we have consistently pursued relationships with industry pioneers and established market-makers and enlisted them as strategic partners.

ECOM developed the technology that powered its inaugural service, Rent BC, in 1998. The founders of the company used extensive research and software development to create the basis of what is arguably one of the strongest technology platforms in North America serving the online vacancy rental market. Today, ECOM supports over 250 rental listing websites ranging from schools, associations, and regional listings services to sites developed in conjunction with our strategic partners. The primary source of our success, however, is a direct result of the growing number of property management, colleges and universities utilizing our off-campus housing solutions.

By investing heavily in our own intellectual property over the years - the major result of which is our hierarchy-based, proprietary software -- , we have been able to work with a wide range of participants in our target market. This market ranges from large apartment owners at one end to roommates and shared accommodations on the other. This model allows for a better cross-section of data, increased traffic flows and more search capability, all of which results in better success in filling vacancies and finding homes for students. Our off-campus housing website provides a turn-key solution to many schools across the United States, Canada and now the Caribbean. In addition, this solution also benefits the landlord, the school, and most of all, the student. We provide our off-campus housing solution absolutely free to colleges and universities - not surprisingly, a highly attractive arrangement - which, enables them to provide safe and suitable housing for their student population. Additionally, our network model allows us to enlist many partners in the generation of ad content by market makers within the industry as well helping to brand them in the process.
