    Our Community

    BlueStripe is more than a place to live while you study: it’s also the opportunity to meet other international students and form memorable friendships on your European adventure. BlueStripe offers theme houses and activities to help students find their communities while abroad.



    BlueStripe housing is available both to exchange students who are looking for housing independently, and to students coming to Europe through organized study programs who work exclusively with BlueStripe.

    If you're a student or intern looking for housing on your own, you can start the process by sending a reservation request for the city where you’ll be living.

    Students living with BlueStripe through our institutional partners will be placed in apartments according to the specific needs of their program, and in most cases will not need to register with BlueStripe directly. If you are a faculty member or other organizer of a university, study abroad, or study-travel program and would like to learn more about housing your group/s in our apartments, please contact us.
