I've been a host with Happipad for a couple years now and have nothing but great things to say! I started with... Happipad because I wanted to reach out to help students find a place, they can feel comfortable in and call home. Our current student is truly a part of our family. My son, being a 15-year-old impressionable teenager has become buddies with this young man who attends the university as a mechanical engineer student. They chat about school, fitness, foods and such, but I never realized how impactful having someone in this nature can be until my son came to me the other day and says... “Mom, I’m thinking about going to University and I want to know what I need to do to get there”. It made me so happy to hear those words, and I know it had a lot to do with the positive influence from our tenant. It makes me happy that our home is a loving and safe home for these boys to grow. Shared accommodations can be such a positive impact for both parties involved. Thank you Happipad for creating such a great concept/service for us!read more

My experience with Happipad was nothing but phenomenal. It couldn't have been any better. I was able to successfully... find a place and close the deal in less than a week and this is helpful if you already have a lot on the go. The process was simple and streamlined, and the service was very professional. I highly recommend this, especially to the students that live in the city.read more

Join our #ConnectAMillion Initiative

Happipad was started in 2017 by a university student looking to match seniors living alone with student renters.

Staying true to the original mission of addressing social isolation among seniors, Happipad is partnering with seniors societies and communities across Canada to connect a million seniors to compatible roommates by 2025.

Anyone affected by senior isolation can support this cause by sharing their story on social media with the #happipad and #ConnectAMillion tags.

Testimonials

Charmaine - Happipad Guest

I was concerned sharing a home at first, but after experiencing living with a wonderful family I would never live in student residence again. We share meals and connect like a family, it's a wonderful feeling.

As an international student I was very worried about adjusting to a new community. After moving in with my host I felt like I was right at home. This has been by far my best student housing experience.
