Why is this gaining popularity?
Of the 34.1 million Indian students enrolled in higher education, over 30% students pursue courses away from their home town. Campus accommodation is limited and PGs and rental accommodation near universities lack the holistic premium living solution.
With greater awareness for quality of life, parents and students are seeking a safe, secure and hygienically maintained facility with nutritious and fresh food availability. Residential campuses, therefore, are viewed as an extension to home with modern, state-of-the-art amenities and services that include high-speed Wi-Fi, comfortable en- suite bedrooms, space to study and space to have fun.
Sodexo’s student experience program, called Student Living by Sodexo, goes beyond simply managing facilities. It employs student engagement strategies and services to help students feel at home and succeed both academically and socially. For the residential campuses it means, helping them focus on their core functions. Sodexo will offer a comprehensive range of services including student dining, hi-street retail food solutions, advanced cleaning and housekeeping solutions, technical engineering, security, building maintenance and service help desk.
