ABSTRACT

This project is aimed at developing a web application for student accommodation. It allows students to choose and book a room of their choice. Research was carried out through reviewing similar existing applications, observations, interviewing people who might want to use the application and project-related articles. The ideas obtained from reviewing other similar applications were used in building the application. Agile methodology was used to build the app. The project was implemented using the Visual Studio IDE. This project has gone smoothly and the major part of all its functionalities have been implemented.
