Premier student site continues to offer the best and most useful information services with launch of co-branded student rental guide.

Cambridge, MA (May 4, 1998) — Student Net Publishing’s Student.Com (, the first independent Web site with original daily content to serve all aspects of college life, today announces a content alliance with Rent.Net ( ), the most visited and comprehensive rental guide on the Internet.

Through the partnership, a co-branded area on Student.Com will be developed where students can search for apartments, moving equipment and storage facilities both in the United States and internationally.

The co-branded area will be launched in conjunction with Student.Com’s “Get Set For Summer” guide, an informational section about how to find a job, rent an apartment, and keep in touch with friends for free. The guide includes articles on “Moving Made Easy,” finding the perfect place to rent and the need for renter’s insurance.

“Students often change apartments more than once each year,” said Stewart Ugelow, founder and CEO of Student Net Publishing. “This partnership with Rent.Net gives Student.Com members the best tools available to find apartments and storage space faster and more efficiently directly through Student.Com.”

“With Rent.Net’s expansive database representing millions of rental units, Student.Com members will be able to find off-campus living options and storage space for the summer,” said Phil Marcus, president of Rent.Net. “Graduating students relocating to another city or state will also be able to search for an apartment right at Student.Com.”
