Happiness meets housing

Connecting students with compatible homes.

The new off-campus housing solution

Happipad houses post-secondary students in spare rooms over fixed-term stays. Students are matched with hosts based on personality, values, and lifestyle.  Happipad is different from home stays, as no meals or other support is required from the host.

Connecting you with a compatible person

Happipad connects compatible people, so that you can feel confident about living with someone else.  What makes people compatible can include language, personality, sleep habits, lifestyle, religion, diet, hobbies, and many other traits. We listen to what’s important so that you can find the right person for your home.
