space,” ex­plained Saket Jalan, Founder & CEO, Cam­pus Stu­dent Com­mu­ni­ties Pvt Ltd. Ro­hit Pa­te­ria, Co-founder & CEO, Pla­cio ex­plain­ing about his com­pany and of­fer­ings said, “When Amity Uni­ver­sity in­cu­bated a stu­dent hous­ing start-up to ad­dress one of the big­gest prob­lems of the stu­dents. Pla­cio, as an or­ga­nized stu­dent hous­ing com­pany came forward and started build­ing ca­pac­ity and take care of off-cam­pus stu­dent hous­ing. There are more than 15000 stu­dents of Amity Uni­ver­sity who live out­side the cam­pus be­cause the cam­pus hos­tel has the lim­i­ta­tion of ac­com­mo­dat­ing only 5000 stu­dents. Now these 15000 stu­dents would go to a PG or a rented apart­ment for ac­com­mo­da­tion. So, it gives a clear mar­ket of around 15000 stu­dents who can be tapped and given a better place for ac­com­mo­da­tion as com­pared to PG or a rented apart­ment. Pla­cio­pro­vides pur­pose built stu­dent hous­ing of­fer­ing sin­gle room, dou­ble or triple sharing rooms. There are three cat­e­gories: Pla­cio Prime, Pla­cio Lux­ury and Pla­cio Dorm with price range from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 25,000. Cur­rently, Pla­cio also works in part­ner­ship model not the sub-lease model with the property own­ers. We sign a ser­vice provider agree­ment, so it be­comes an ex­clu­sive Pla­cio property and the com­pany is re­spon­si­ble for mar­ket­ing & brand­ing, sys­tem im­ple­men­ta­tion, pro­vid­ing property man­age­ment tool, man­ag­ing their op­er­a­tion more ef­fi­ciently, train­ing of staff, pro­vid­ing ded­i­cated com­mu­nity man­ager who is re­spon­si­ble for man­ag­ing 150-200 stu­dents in the property. Pla­cio works closely with the Uni­ver­si­ties, un­der­stands the re­quire­ment, chan­nel­ize the de­mand and help in the value ad­di­tion as well as growth of the property own­ers.”
