Tribe student accommodation started out as a cool student accommodation from Pune. The idea was to provide world class facilities to students. Covid outbreak has caused untold human misery something that the world had not witnessed before. The economy took a nosedive, educational institutions were temporarily shut, and hospitals witnessed a surge in patients. Gradually, hospital rooms became scarce. The Tribe management realized their responsibility towards the society and fellow human being hence, the idea to convert the rooms into isolation center took birth. It is called the ‘Revive Isolation Center’. They are providing all the facilities/amenities and food to the required people in Pune to the asymptomatic patients.
Recommendation by NomadLawyer
The story goes like this, I did my law from Symbiosis Law College, Pune. From my personal experience, I can say “What it means for a student to find a good accommodation in an unknown city”.
Well to highlight the pain for a student, I will cite some crazy reasons given by the flat owners to vacate the place. I was thrown out of my flat many times in Pune. Please guys, I am not the only one, everyone experiences this shit. Some of the weirdest reasons were, “you are unmarried” to which I said, “Of Course I will be unmarried, during my college days. Your female friends come, I said, they will come right, they are friends just like a guy. You play music at night, c’mon man! What do you expect to play music during the day when I am at college or sleeping? one of the owners said, you do drugs, I was like, dude! Are you insane? never ever have tried drugs.

You know what, I changed 10 flats in Pune in 5 years but please don’t judge me I was a decent enough guy, just that I could not find a home away from home, that’s why a concept like Tribe is really a blessing in disguise.
A home away from home with good food is really important for a student. Team Tribe is doing a commendable job in this regard and NomadLawyer highly recommends it and wishes you all the very best for the future.

Tribe Student Accommodation–The Idea
Tribe Student Accommodation was an idea brought into action by Yogesh Mehra, Shantam Mehra, and Aman Mehra in 2018 wherein this family trio realized that students in India had no standardized good accommodation choice to live apart from apartments, university hostels or PGs. Sharing the foundation story of Tribe, Yogesh Mehra, Founder & CEO, Tribe Student Accommodation, says “My sons, Aman Mehra and Shantam Mehra, who are also directors of the company, have been studying and living in hostels throughout their life. Their experience was the foundation for starting Tribe. Also being from the real estate sector for the last 20 years, we realized that there was a need to open up new avenues and new models in real estate that drive growth and solve an extremely real problem in a country that has the largest student population in the world.
Tribe Student Accommodation: Been Awarded Student Housing of the Year
The student accommodation industry had begun maturing by 2018 with people realizing the need and value for such a product and service.

We will continue to strive to create top of the line facilities, products and provide an unparalleled service experience using cutting edge technology and real estate know-how.

Tribe Student Accommodation- Temporary Covid Isolation Centers
In 2021, the COVID pandemic considerably took over the cities of Pune and Mumbai. With the situation in dire straits, Aman and Shantam made a conscious decision to pivot the Tribe model to convert existing properties to COVID isolation centres to help with the situation. Within a week, two centres were signed and opened up in collaboration with a consortium of doctors and hospitals. Tribe believes in a “one for all and all for one” philosophy, and they sure did their part in this catastrophe. Tribe is looking to rapidly expand into University campuses and across multiple cities to change the status quo on how we live, everywhere.
We wish The Tribe community reaches new heights and render quality hospitality to students.
