Unveiled just this season, in time for college football and homecoming weekends, Graduate Homes is a new program providing travelers with private home accommodations in the same destinations you’ll find Graduate Hotels properties. Each homestay comes with extra VIP amenities such as access to hotel pools and fitness centers, concierge service, discounts at restaurants and bars, and available in-home experiences, from yoga classes to catering.


On the homeowner side, those who list their properties with Graduate Homes enjoy the brand taking care of every aspect of a stay, from marketing to communications, while homeowners simply rake in the extra income and come back to a clean house. As an added benefit, homeowners also receive access to special perks at Graduate Hotels properties in their towns and discounts on hotel stays.

The Graduate Homes program is now active in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Oxford, Mississippi.


Were thrilled to introduce travelers to the next iteration of the Graduate Hotels guest experience with the launch of Graduate Homes,” said Kevin Osterhaus, president, Graduate Hotels. The short-term rental market has exploded in the last few years, and as a hotel brand that is rooted in university communities, we felt this was a natural next step for our brand. We hope Graduate Homes becomes a staple for families and travelers to celebrate milestones for many years to come.”
