dc.description.abstractHermitCrab Housing is a website that allows international students to find housing and roommates at U.S. colleges based on preferences such as language, country, and compatibility. This business will create and manage a website for incoming international students to the United States for information on universities, living in the US, and connections to the community. HermitCrab will expand each year to new universities to increase the total available market. In addition, the company will add revenue sources by providing additional services for a premium price. While still in their home country, prospective international students have trouble finding housing near their new university and finding a compatible roommate. There are currently 765,000 international students living in the United States right now. Each year, 215,000 new students will come from around the world to begin a program in an American university. These students all have similar housing problems that could use additional, accurate, and easy-to-read housing information to help them make the most informed decision. We provide unbiased housing information with relevant reviews written by other international students. We also satisfy the needs of international students when looking for roommates through a detailed questionnaire and roommate ranking system.
