Our team was headed to the 2022 NMHC Student Housing Conference this week in Miami Beach, but due to Hurricane Ian, the show was sadly canceled.
This conference is one of the best events for student housing professionals that brings together leaders from all facets of the sector, including owners, operators, investors, lenders, university partners and technology partners like Nomadix. Its council is also the leading advocate for the privately owned student housing market, encompassing off-campus student housing and on-campus, public-private partnerships.
With another semester underway, the demand for student housing is higher than ever. In fact, by 2040, the number of students in global higher education is projected to reach 594 million, according to research by RMIT University in Melbourne. That’s a lot of students requiring massive amounts of bandwidth for gaming and content streaming – AND, of course, for studying, collaborating, attending online courses, and working.
“Studies have shown that a powerful, smart Wi-Fi environment is required to enable students to succeed in higher education. All students deserve the resources they need to succeed, and college campuses have an opportunity to provide the secure, reliable connectivity needed for these students to study, work and relax,” said Mike Womack, Nomadix vice president of partner sales – the Americas.
How can on-campus and off-campus housing accommodate the fast access the students want and need? How can they make it easy for their property managers?
Our multi-tenant solutions have expanded into the higher education and student housing sectors, after success in the residential market. Students and property managers need private, secure and scalable services based on the sheer volume of access required, especially with onboarding and offboarding each semester. We offer an all-in-one managed student Wi-Fi solution that can seamlessly sit on top of our proven infrastructure, Nomadix Networks (a portfolio of gateways, access points, controllers and switches), and other selected vendors, to build smart and safer communities. Additionally, communities can also add on Nomadix Alerts, a 2-in-1 wearable staff safety device that helps safeguard isolated staff from threats and harassment, and offers built-in fall detection and Wi-Fi analysis.
Our Multi-Tenant Portal supports student housing communities by enabling dedicated, private networks for hundreds to up to thousands of students or for numerous roommates within the same unit. With easy onboarding and management, property managers can enable instant access on day one and make changes between units and upgrades for bandwidth subscription changes.
The combination of the Nomadix Multi-Tenant platform with the Nomadix Networks and Nomadix Alerts products create the ultimate technological environment to address all these challenges at the best total cost of ownership.
