BOHO Student & Technology
A Student Impact Report by Octopus Real Estate found that those living in purpose-built student accommodation are more likely to achieve top grades (26%) than those living in university halls of residence and 15% more likely than those living at home.
Also, better technology facilities in accommodation appear to contribute to student satisfaction and academic performance. Students who achieved top grades of over 70% are almost twice as likely to have prioritised the use of technology when choosing their accommodation (21%), in comparison to those who achieved lower than 69% in their grades (13%).
BOHO's first property Scotway House which is part of the BOHO Student brand has been designed with technology a top priority for its student residents.
Gillian Sloan, General Manager at Scotway House said “We wanted to make life for our residents as simple as possible. The building has been designed and kitted out with the latest technologies to allow students to not only focus on their studies but also enjoy socialising with friends.”
Firstly, there is the free BOHO app available to download on smartphones. On the app, find everything you need to know about living at Scotway House, book a room clean, find out if you have a parcel, explore social events, enjoy exclusive discounts and place orders to selected local partners which includes food orders and language tutors.
Residents can also access a fully automated 24/7 parcel room which is linked to the app. There are multiple areas in the study and social building which can be booked digitally, including the cinema room, kitchen/dining room and various study booths. The tech-savvy accommodation is also equipped with the best and latest gym equipment, fast Wi-Fi and smart televisions with IPTV.
At BOHO we endeavour to be innovative and constantly seek the best way to do things. Technology plays an important role in delivering excellent customer service and therefore we promise to be at the top of our game in all our cities and buildings to ensure the best possible experience.
