As a European community that values respect, collaboration and freedom, our solidarity is with Ukraine’s people and all innocent people suffering from this unfortunate crisis.
With our mission and commitment to ‘help people with housing, anywhere’, we feel it is our duty to support Ukrainians who are forced to leave their loved ones behind and in desperate need of a home.
Key features of the ‘Support Ukraine Housing Platform’ include:
A simple and fast process
Organisations and individuals can make their living spaces available directly to Ukrainian refugees, indicating the maximum duration and the number of people they can accommodate. Places may be offered for free or at a reduced rental price.
A safe and secure environment
Refugees from Ukraine can be in direct contact with the people offering a place with an easy and secure messaging system. In case of paid accommodation, the first month rent is protected for 48 hours after the move-in and released, once the accommodation provided has been seen and was as advertised and agreed.
The platform is available in 10 languages, including Ukrainian and Russian. A professional customer service team also provides multi-language support, available to anybody seeking and offering a place to stay.
No HousingAnywhere fees
No fees will be charged by us, to either tenants or landlords, in support of this crisis.

We've put all the answers to the questions you may have here.
In which cities can I offer a place to stay?
Can I choose how many people and for how long they can stay?
Yes. You can state how many people can stay. You can choose a start and end date for the stay, a maximum rental period, or both. If you’ve selected a maximum stay of 3 months, people can’t request the place for 4 months.
Who determines the duration of stay?
You can discuss that with the people who contact you about your place.
Will I be compensated in any way?
You can choose to offer a free stay or one at a discounted price. If you offer a stay at a discounted price, HousingAnywhere will not charge you a commission fee.
Is my offer available only for the Ukrainian people?
No. You can offer a stay to anyone fleeing the war in Ukraine. Keep in mind that there may be different visa or entry requirements for non-EU nationality holders.
How can I be sure that they’re not scammers trying to take advantage of free housing?
When filling out the details of your stay, you can select ‘Proof of identity’ as a required document to book. We’ll then ask anyone who contacts you to share a copy of their ID. You can also ask for proof of identity anytime before accepting a booking request.
Can I receive and send private information, like contact details?
People may ask you to contact them outside our platform. For your safety and to prevent scammers, keep all conversations and payments on HousingAnywhere. Once a booking is confirmed, we’ll share the contact details.
Can I decline a request?
Yes. You decide whose booking request to accept or decline. If you decline a booking request, your offer will stay visible on our platform for other people looking for a stay.
Can I remove my offer?
Yes. You can ‘unpublish’ or ‘delete’ your offer anytime. If you’ve already accepted a booking request from someone but have to cancel for a valid reason, inform them as soon as possible.
