BruinShack was started by a UCLA student who personally experienced the stress of searching for housing. Having to move 13 times due to being on the edge of homelessness, finding a place to stay was never easy. Walking around and jotting phone numbers, applying to waitlists, the housing search process was miserable.
Wanting to make something that could help future students, BruinShack was created as a housing search platform that puts students first. With peer reviews, transparent pricing, and comprehensive listings, BruinShack's goal is to equip students with the information necessary to successfully navigate the student housing landscape.
As a UCLA student who struggled to navigate the Westwood apartment scene, I want to help ease the process for my community as well as contribute to BruinShack’s social media presence and overall design!
BruinShack is very concise and well formatted to deliver the information directly.
After a really rough housing experience, I want to ensure future students can have the information they need to find good housing. I also hope to be a housing developer and city planner.
I hope to bring a sense of ease in the housing process for future UCLA students to make people feel more at home
Excited to create easy to navigate, user-oriented experiences at BruinShack, with student needs at the core of every decision.
