ABODO Apartments Off-To-College Scholarship

$500

ABODO is an apartment search service started by a few guys from UW – Madison. ABODO was built by students for students. Why?

We decided to solve the problem by pulling together all the listings around campus, putting them all on a single map with powerful filters and displaying real-time availability. It worked for us, so now we’re on a mission to spread the love and make off-campus apartment search easy across the country!
