Studying abroad is the dream of many young Indians. Getting admission in the best college and acquiring funds to pay fees and stay there are some crucial things involved in this.

In addition to that, finding suitable accommodation at an affordable price is another difficult task.  It is, in fact, a big challenge for students to go through a transition of staying at a completely new surrounding from a comfortable home environment.

To help these students, UniAcco came into the field. UniAcco was founded by Amit Singh and Sayatan Biswas to help students who find it difficult to get the right accommodation abroad.
