Student housing needs have changed drastically in the last few years as the student lifestyle has moved online. Young adults are now meeting one another online before interacting face-to-face, connecting through popular dating apps or social media sites like TikTok and Instagram. Student housing needs to adapt to the changing demands of today’s students. We’re highlighting the top three student housing connectivity solutions residents demand today.
Mobile Devices – Improving Cellular Coverage
First and foremost, students expect reliable cellular coverage. They expect to roam about their apartment complex without dropping calls or missing connections. Student housing complexes were traditionally wrought with dead zones (places without cellular service). WorldVue Digital Infrastructure™ is a reliable student housing connectivity solution for complexes across North America. With WorldVue, tenants can stay connected throughout the property, especially in high-danger zones like stairwells and parking garages.
Fast communication is key for today’s young adults, and they’re not going to live in a complex where their main device, their cellphone, is not supported. The WorldVue cellular boosting platform is carrier-agnostic, meaning students can reliably connect to their cell service, regardless of their independent carrier. Our alliance partnership with Nextivity means we can provide their pre-approved cellular boosting program to our customers. Cel-Fi by Nextivity is universal, and properties can rest assured that they won’t have issues with carriers or the FCC down the road. Cellular coverage is a key component of student housing connectivity needs.
Online Assignments and Classes – Better Bandwidth
Throughout the past few years, students have proved they can work efficiently on their own, away from campus. Students may still need to attend hands-on classes like labs and workshops, but for the most part, they can do their assignments and take tests online. To stream lectures and perform their class requirements, students need reliable Wi-Fi access. In addition to performing their school duties, students enjoy relaxing in their own space and watching their favorite shows and movies. Streaming services like Netflix and YouTube require low latency and high levels of bandwidth coverage. Students expect to have the capability to stream their favorite content and engage with one another through social media. WorldVue Connectivity provides the constant connectivity students need today.
When young adults are deciding where to live, they’ll read the reviews left by previous tenants. Ensure your current tenants have reliable connectivity so they will encourage new residents to lease in your student living complex. Wi-Fi is not an amenity for students, it is an absolute must when they are determining where they’re going to live. Improve your student housing’s connectivity platform with WorldVue Connectivity.
Gaming Advancements – Increasing Internet Speeds
Videogames are gaining popularity, especially as new devices like VR and Augmented Reality infiltrate the everyday marketplace. No longer a deluxe product, virtual reality headsets are making their way into mainstream media, encouraging companies to target new audiences. Fitness companies, travel agencies and international corporations are developing new innovations for customers who might have otherwise overlooked videogame advancements. Student living complexes need to improve their internet service to accommodate all these new “gamers.”
