Housing providers and intermediaries
This category is specifically created for accommodation providers and intermediaries. It provides a document informing how they can connect to HOME’s technical solution and showcase their housing offers in the Erasmus+ App, the European one-stop-shop of mobility by the European Commission. This document will also focus on what the HOME’s Student Accommodation Quality Labels mean for housing providers and market intermediaries and what standards underpin them.
Educational resources are made available to understand how to assess the properties’ quality and how to grant the properties one or more HOME Quality Labels. This will be easily comparable with practical examples of successfully and wrongly applied labels. The document also includes what the HOME technical infrastructure is and how to connect to it. In addition to this, here it will be possible to download a personalised “Train the trainer” Multiplier Toolkit for housing providers and market intermediaries to replicate the results of HOME.
