Student Cribz

An real estate listing website making it easier for students to find off-campus housing.

The Stack

Python, Django, HTML 5, CSS 3, Bootstrap 4, Google Analytics, Google Analytics, Tableau

Brief History

In march of 2017, I created Student Cribz (then called Temple Cribs). In order to release the product as quickly as possible I decided that WordPress, with a custom theme, should be used in order to quickly get off the ground. During the summer of 2017 I taught myself Python and Django, and during the 2017-18 winter break rebuilt the Student Cribz from the ground up using these technologies.

The Why

While in college, I noticed the process through which students find off-campus housing can be nerve racking and is overall not a very enjoyable experience.

The How

Provide students with a place to see all their options and enable them to contact the land lord or property manager without having to leave the listing website.

The Future

After expanding to Drexel University and switching from WordPress to a custom built solution using Django, I decided it was time to close up shop.
