Share Article

Student residents hate friction, they want to access whatever they want, whenever they want to, on whichever device they choose with no additional steps required. Student Housing Internet delivery systems should be designed for ‘zero friction’ in the User Experience (UX).

Campus Technologies Inc, a leading managed network provider and system architect of high capacity wired and wireless Internet Access networks in residential student accommodation, today announces the availability of its latest white paper on best practices for Internet delivery in student housing, addressing the need to reduce access friction in order to deliver an excellent user experience (UX) for residents. This white paper is the latest in a series covering best practices for the student housing industry.

The design of a student housing Internet access system often includes the requirement for the student to log on to access the Internet, or to register the device that they are using to obtain permission to access the network. The reasoning behind this is that the network operator wants to know who is accessing the network using which device so they can take remedial action if something goes wrong. Unfortunately this approach has drawbacks as it can and does introduce a level of frustration and annoyance for those that have to use the network.

To explore those drawbacks and to learn about the solutions, Campus Technologies has made this new white paper available as a no cost download from its website at or from the link below.

Going frictionless is a great way of improving resident satisfaction with very little effort, a true ‘quick win’, and satisfied residents are much more likely to renew their leases next year and tell their friends how great the internet service is at their property.

The recommended best practice is for all new construction is to be designed as frictionless right out of the box. Designing for a frictionless user experience should be no more expensive, but will positively affect resident satisfaction immediately.
