Austin,TX, September 18, 2014 – CampusConnect, the leader in gigabit student housing connectivity services & management, has announced its attendance of the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) Annual Student Housing Conference & Exhibition held from September 30th – October 2, 2014. The NHMC Student Housing Conference & Exhibition unites thought leaders and experts in the student housing industry to discuss innovations, insights and advocacy in concurrence with the start of a new academic year. CampusConnect executives, President, Rob Paver and VP of Strategic Development, Shellie Corley, are excited to share their insights on student network usage trends and the urgency for 360° of “digital comfort” amongst student housing communities.
“We are thrilled to be attending the conference and share the latest data on student internet usage and student housing network tips with our peers. We’ve just completed “move-in” for thousands of students in our network and from analyzing our data, we can attest to the need for a complete and thorough internet network connection experience for student residents,”- said Rob Paver, CampusConnect President
Recent reports by College Explorer state that the average student owns seven Internet-connected devices (e.g. computers, phones, gaming consoles, TV streaming boxes, printers, tablet computers and e-readers) and spends 125.4 hours per week (approximately 75% of hours per week) on tech devices. CampusConnect’s parent company, Apogee, reports that wireless devices are tripling in population on campus annually.
“As student demand for total access and integration of technology for their daily lives increases, so does the need to provide a fast, quality internet solution by their student housing management teams. As owners and operations try to stay ahead of the technology curve, they need to make sure Internet providers take proactive measures to accommodate developer requirements, while keeping students connected and comfortable,” said Paver.
CampusConnect seeks to meet student demand for multi-device connectivity via accessibility, speed and 24/7 in-house Internet connection customer service all from the comfort of each student’s apartment.
