Things students want easy access to around their university
As a student, relocating to a new city can be daunting. Especially abroad. That’s why most of them are looking for easy access to familiar things around their campus. And while the essentials remain the same for most students (food, bank, transport, shopping...) there’s a big and surprising difference in particulars they look for, depending on which country they’re from.
Students from India, for example, have a cybercafé at the top of their wish list. While Nigerian students are eager for a spa, and US and UK students fancy movie theatres and golf courses around the campus.
Another remarkable finding is that UK and German students want to regularly attend a boxing gym. And after having thrown some punches they like to swing by... a florist 🤔 And what about students from Ghana? Most of them want to get behind the wheel at campus, so they are looking for a driving school around the neighbourhood.
