Student Net Publishing's Student.Com and Rent.Net Partner

Cambridge, MA-based Student Net Publishing's Student.Com, a Web site with original daily college life content, signed an alliance with Rent.Net, an Internet housing rental guide.

Through the partnership, a co-branded area on Student.Com will be developed where students can search for apartments, moving equipment, and storage facilities both in the United States and internationally. Financial details were not disclosed.

The co-branded area will be launched in conjunction with Student.Com's "Get Set For Summer" guide, an informational section about how to find a job, rent an apartment, and keep in touch with friends for free. The guide includes articles on "Moving Made Easy," finding the perfect place to rent and the need for renter's insurance.

"With Rent.Net's expansive database representing millions of rental units, Student.Com members will be able to find off-campus living options and storage space for the summer," said Phil Marcus, president of San Francisco-based Rent.Net. "Graduating students relocating to another city or state will also be able to search for an apartment right at Student.Com."
