Covering gaps in traditional international student health products, the partnership gives all international students automatic access to Crisis Cover’s Student Parachute membership through the StudentRoomStay platform.
Student Parachute is a tech-friendly membership that protects international students when the unexpected strikes during their time overseas.
Adam Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of SRS, acknowledged that StudentRoomStay is the first global accommodation provider to introduce this type of initiative with such dedication to student safety.
“Both StudentRoomStay and Student Parachute have consistently prioritized an unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of international students,” said Lee.
“By providing personalized accommodation and real-time emergency response services in one primary location, we allow students to enjoy their study abroad experience with confidence that we are always looking out for their safety and protection.”
CEO of Crisis Cover, Carole Tokody, stated that recent global events have proved the importance of providing international students with the emergency support and assistance they need when the unexpected happens.
“This integration will not only provide students with a solid foundation for safety and success, but will allow their families to have peace of mind no matter where their loved one chooses to study," she said.
StudentRoomStay.com and the StudentRoomStay app will be available to students worldwide in 2020, starting with an initial launch in the United States. This will quickly be followed by operation launches in Australia, Canada and the rest of the globe.
