Helping students find their home away from home
StudyFlats was founded by Sohrab Vazir under the mentorship of Newcastle University.
Our mission is empowering students in choosing where they live through technology.
Sohrab was born in Iran and spent his childhood in between Iran and Switzerland until moving to the UK at the age of 17 in pursuit of higher Education. Owing to his background, Sohrab considers himself to be a true global citizen. After obtaining his LLM in International Law from Newcastle University, Sohrab (who was only 22 then) went on to become a solo tech founder. He received 2 endorsements from Newcastle University Careers Services’ START UP team for an entrepreneur visa, with endorsements being annually limited to 20 graduates out of 6,000. During his time as an entrepreneur, Sohrab expanded StudyFlats to over 30 UK cities and received recognition from GBEA & NatWest.
To date, we have consulted and helped over 1000 students in more than 50 countries.
