Professor's company, StayBillety, seeks home-sharing hosts for commencement

March 7, 2018

Syracuse-based startup StayBillety, whose CEO is Newhouse professor of practice Barbara Jones, is seeking home-sharing hosts for Syracuse University’s 2018 commencement weekend.

Jones launched the internet-based community accommodation service, which connects like-minded guests and hosts for home-sharing, in 2016. The company became the official online accommodation service of Syracuse University Athletics last summer.

To register as a host, visit, list your home or spare room, and indicate Syracuse University as a supported groups.

Families seeking a place to stay during commencement weekend can book accommodations by visiting the StayBillety Syracuse University page and using the affiliate code “orange.”
