Syracuse University Athletics partners with online accommodation service StayBillety

SYRACUSE, NY (July 26, 2017)Syracuse University Athletics and StayBillety.com are pleased to announce their partnership to help SU friends, families and fans find affordable accommodation when traveling.  The multi-year partnership launches on the home sharing website today.

With this agreement, StayBillety becomes the Official Online Accommodation Service of Syracuse University Athletics.   The partnership serves the local Syracuse community and the broader, global community of SU fans, family and alumni. 

We’re seeing a growing demand for reasonably priced accommodation options for SU sports and alumni events,” said Deputy Athletics Director – External Operations, Chris Fuller, “We hope Syracuse residents, especially those near the SU Hill, will welcome families, fans and returning alumni into their homes by listing their extra spaces on the site.”

StayBillety Hosts benefit financially from sharing their space.  “This partnership with StayBillety is a great way for Syracuse-area residents to earn some extra income by renting their homes or spare rooms to SU fans, family and alumni,” said Barbara Jones, StayBillety Founder & CEO.

Jones is an SU alumna and Professor of Practice at SU's Newhouse School. “The Athletics Department leadership really understands how StayBillety can both serve and strengthen the University’s links to the Syracuse community.  We look forward helping local residents register on the site as Hosts, and to connecting them with visiting Orange fans.”

StayBillety is available throughout North America. SU alumni everywhere are encouraged to register, list their extra space and book to connect with fellow members of the SU family.

 

Over 120 Syracuse University students and faculty have been involved in the research, design, development, marketing and launch of StayBillety.com. The initial site went live in March 2016.   The partnership with SU marks the launch of StayBillety’s first U.S. affiliation agreement. 

 

According to a recent emarketer report, almost 57 million Americans will use a sharing economy service this year.
