Uni Market 4The marketplace now offers students an opportunity to sell items (such as textbooks, furniture, computers, etc.) for free. Students simply sign up for the website, join their university’s network, upload items and sell to others. Payments can be made through PayPal or in person and then the seller just meets the buyer to exchange the supplies. Students are also able to trade with others in different universities. Items can stay on as long as the seller wishes (no deadlines). Besides supply exchanges, the marketplace also has discount vouchers, which students can redeem at popular retailers. It also offers accommodation and job listing sections. Users must be verified as a student otherwise they cannot use the website.

We aim to host the ultimate student platform, where our audience can interact together in a safe environment, with students on their campus or anywhere in the UK. Students will not only be able to browse and purchase textbooks and furniture (amongst other items), but also find accommodation and part-time jobs to support their studies.”

Funds from the campaign will be used for the following:
