Graduate Hotels recently announced the launch of Graduate Homes, a premium short-term rental offering with properties available to book in Oxford for stays beginning in the fall.

Specializing in college-rooted markets, Graduate Homes offers travelers an elevated guest experience and local homeowners the opportunity to earn additional income during peak college weekends such as football and basketball games at home, graduation and reunion.

Graduate Homes is also offered in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Graduate Homes guests will stay in homes in prime college locations, with VIP amenities including a dedicated concierge service to coordinate everything from transportation to the ultimate tailgating experience, access to pools and hot tubs. Graduate Hotels fitness centers and exclusive discounts at Graduate Hotels bars and restaurants.

Guests will also be able to book in-home experiences, such as yoga classes or personal mixologists, through Graduate Hotels’ partnership with experiential platform Way.

“We are excited to introduce travelers to the next iteration of the Graduate Hotels guest experience with the launch of Graduate Homes,” said Kevin Osterhaus, President of Graduate Hotels. “The short-term rental market has exploded over the past few years, and as a hotel brand rooted in college communities, we felt this was a natural next step for our brand. We hope Graduate Homes will become a staple for families and travelers to celebrate milestones for many years to come.

Graduate Homes uniquely offers owners all management services, including booking platform, listing marketing, vacation planning, concierge services, and pre- and during-stay communication. While guests experience the destination like a local, owners earn extra income and return to a clean, secure home. Owners listed with Graduate Homes will receive additional incentives and benefits, including exclusive access to their neighboring Graduate as well as a 20% discount at all 32 Graduate Hotels properties in the US and UK.

In addition to existing properties, Graduate Homes will continue to expand the platform with luxury residences that offer Graduate Homes settings. Interested homeowners are encouraged to apply through the Graduate Homes website.
