With an in­ven­tory of 22,000 beds across nine cities such as Delhi, Bengaluru, Hy­der­abad, Chen­nai and Dehradun to name a few, Stanza Living is set­ting bench­marks in the largely un­or­gan­ised sec­tor of co-living spa­ces for stu­dents. Founded in 2017, in Delhi, the idea was born out of co-founders Anindya Dutta and San­deep Dalmia’s per­sonal en­coun­ters with stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tions. Dutta, a for­mer in­vest­ment banker, and Dalmia, a man­age­ment con­sul­tant, dur­ing their time abroad work­ing had a

chance to closely ob­serve stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tions and that mo­ti­vated them to cre­ate some­thing sim­i­lar to cater to the needs of the stu­dents in In­dia. Stanza Living has raised nearly US$17 mil­lion from in­vestors and is backed by Sequoia Cap­i­tals, Accel, Matrix Part­ners and Al­te­ria Cap­i­tal. One can take a quick look at the prop­er­ties and ameni­ties that they pro­vide on their web­site and book a visit to the prop­erty of choice. The app-based feed­back sys­tem en­sures timely ad­dres­sal of the griev­ances of the res­i­dents. With taste­fully-de­signed, fully-fur­nished rooms, vi­brant com­mon spa­ces for en­ter­tain­ment, healthy meals with a chef-cu­rated menu, Wi-Fi, laun­dry, house­keep­ing, 24x7 se­cu­rity and com­mu­nity build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that help stu­dents bond and so­cialise are some of the ser­vices pro­vided to en­sure a cost-ef­fec­tive, flex­i­ble, re­li­able and com­fort­able living.
