Who are we? RateMyRent.com is currently run by one person but I say we because this site is actually maintained by the ratings and comments of many BYU students.
This site was designed to help BYU students find better living conditions. The idea was developed over the course of a semester, inspired and encouraged by The History of Creativity (MFG 201)
A great class for anyone who needs to finish their Civilization Requirements or wants to become more creative!
I (Ben), am the webmaster of RateMyRent.com. I am a Computer Science major (with an emphasis in bioinformatics). Being from Texas, it was hard for me to find an apartment at BYU.
I remember searching the internet for advice on BYU apartments before coming to Provo. I knew little about Provo, and I felt quite lost.
From the beginning I was wishing for a better way to find a great apartment.
Have you ever felt this way? I'm sure we all have. Yes, finding the right place to live is a daunting task.
It requires considerable time and effort.
And even once a prospective apartment has been found,
there is always a question about what the housing is really like…
the truth behind the beautiful show room.
RateMyRent.com was designed to solve these problems. The purpose of this site is to assist BYU students in finding great apartments.
The Goal: To increase student communication about BYU housing and apartments.
