Arabian Link is a decade old co-living and corporate housing company in Kuwait


In a bid to expand, student housing company Placio on Wednesday announced its foray into co-living segment. Placio has partnered with Kuwait-based Arabian Link for co-living which will also be its first overseas venture, according to the company’s statement.


“The co-living segment, an emerging sector in real estate, has the potential to grow into a $93-billion market in India. In India, the co-living sector has total untapped demand of approximately 63 million beds, out of which 30 million is from student housing. This segment suffers from huge mismatch between demand and supply,” said Mustafa Shikora, Founder, Arabian Link.


Placio and Arabian Link shall jointly expand in the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC) region including Qatar, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Oman and Bahrain. Arabian Link is a decade old co-living and corporate housing company in Kuwait.


“After gaining rich experience in managing student housing operations and hospitality in India, our next move is towards the co-living segment that has huge potential globally,” said Rohit Pateria, Founder, Placio.
