Case Study

Camilo Co-living: An empty house turned into a Co-living full of life

Camilo Co-Living is a joyful place for international students, located in the heart of Porto! 

The house features 21 private bedrooms and ample common areas that allowed Student Room Flat to build a community management program that transformed Camilo into so much more than just accommodation.

The Story

Each house has its own personality and Camilo is no different! But how to build a charismatic and strong identity? 

The nature of Camilo’s Co-living made it easier! We recognized the potential to build a strong community management program and to turn this into a joyful experience.

In order to transmit this community feeling, we developed activities calendars, integration weeks, and common tasks to bring together the community and a sense of home. In the end, we always come back to happy places, right?

The Goals

  • Distinguish the property with a happy stay and a strong program of community management
  • Make Camilo a reference as a Co-Living for international students
  • Develop a strong program of referrals with a focus on the word of mouth marketing
  • Grow overall revenues and property value

The Process

Communication Strategy
With the right messaging and content it is important to define channels, deadlines to create a smooth communication flow. Student Room Flat assured Camilo Co-living was exactly where it needed to be!
Community Management Program
The purchase and acquisition of the client is just the beginning! The hosting adventure begins and Student Room Flat wants to make sure the promotion will meet the expectations. After an intensive training program of community management, it is time to have an activity calendar and provide a memorable experience.
Word of mouth marketing strategy
There is no stronger marketing tool than word of mouth! With communication and community management forces united, we assured a gradual growth of, not only, referrals but extensions of stay! Prolong the stay, maximize the profits!

What people say about us

David R.

Erasmus Student from Italy


“I did my Erasmus mobility in Portugal in one of the houses managed by them, an absolutely great experience, each house has a manager inside who has as main objective not to control but to create a familiar and comfortable environment for everyone through fun activities of all kinds.
The house was really well kept, clean and there was no lack of comfort.
Camilo coliving in Porto will always remain in my heart.
Highly recommended. “

Erasmus Prague


“Hi! We are Javi👦🏻 Dani👩🏻‍🦱 & Andy👩🏼‍🦳, three mexican artists that came to Prague to study abroad at AAU.

Through Student Flat Room we met really nice people from different countries, and at the events we could bond with them and created unforgettable memories and friendships.

There’s always something to do and someone to meet in Prague, we love going to museums, cafés, buildings, parties or even just walking around the gorgeous city.

We are leaving soon and we are really thankful for everything we lived in here. We’re really gonna miss Prague. 💞”

Erasmus Porto


Hello! We are Mariona and Ariadna, two catalan girls that came to Porto to study abroad and enjoy the experience of Erasmus!

We met each other in our home university and one day we decided to do an Erasmus and live this experience together, and we did it!

We found student room flat looking in differents webpages of Erasmus flats. When we saw pictures of Camilo house we fell in love and we booked it. The day we arrived there we felt like we were in a dream, it was amazing!

The city of Porto is awesome and beautiful, you have lots of things to do and visit. The people we met there are amazing and we miss them a lot!

If you have the chance and the oportunity to do Erasmus, don’t think about it, DO IT!!!!!
