It's a "put your phone down, have a conversation" kind of place

We come from all walks of life, and all over the world, to share our experiences and values.

Bringing Community Back to the City

If you’ve lived in the city, you’ve felt lonely. We definitely have. That’s why we wanted to solve this problem by bringing people together to create real connections. Our homes are filled with unique personalities, lively conversations, fun events, and shared meals.

We Make Living Together Easy

Starcity takes care of the community so the community members can take care of each other. You'll never worry about buying furniture, weekly cleaning, or basic amenities. You’ll never have to set up the utilities or wait for someone to fix the cable. We handle all of that so you can focus on what’s more important.

Our values guide us

We strive to be:

Hygge

Our favorite Danish word. It means deeply cozy and comfortable. The feeling of your favorite cafe, or maybe your childhood home. That’s the feeling we want you to have when you come to Starcity.

Open

Accessible to everyone, flexible with each other, and transparent in how we do business.

Authentic

We want everyone to feel like they’re being themselves at Starcity and really experiencing these awesome cities. We don’t need you to be anyone else but you.

Welcoming

We all know what it feels like to be the new kid, so we take extra care to make sure you feel welcomed in your new city and your new home.

Considerate

Everything we do is with you in mind. And if there’s ever a way we can improve, we want to know it.

Enjoy Peace of Mind Every Step of the Way

Move in with a Suitcase

Our fully-furnished spaces are intentionally designed with comfort and durability in mind for both communal and private living areas. Spaces are inspired by the surrounding neighborhood and the people who live in them. Move in with nothing but a suitcase and start to make your new community your home.

Thoughtful Coliving Details

We've designed our homes for living better together, down to the detail. All our homes have a generous bathroom to room ratio. We've taken extra care to provide a shared honor library, apportioned kitchen and fridge space, individual mailboxes, and every essential so you'll never have to make a home-related Target run again (though we don't blame you if you want to).

Helping Hands When You Need Them

We never want you to think of us as your landlord. Whatever you might need, we're going to try to find a way to help. We offer extra services such as dog walking, room cleaning, package delivery, wash and fold, and furniture rental. Would your landlord ever pick you up from oral surgery if you couldn't find a ride? We would ♥.
