We receive deliveries from any delivery company

It’s what we call being courier-inclusive

Having one single point of truth for customer contact details is integral to efficiently operating a property. Groundfloor’s focus on software integration saves us significant time and confusion versus having to maintain these details in multiple disconnected systems.

An intelligent parcel locker system

An intelligent parcel locker system automating parcel delivery management is now a crucial addition to the student residence community. Traditionally, facility staff personally handle every parcel delivery arriving for their students each day. Staff are responsible for interacting with couriers, notifying students by email, and then locating the required item amongst an ever-growing mailroom pile. This burden is extremely costly, inefficient, time-consuming, and sometimes dangerous.

Why student accommodation facilities need secure parcel lockers

Students are amongst the most prolific online shoppers. For students wishing to receive deliveries at their student accommodation, current processes have many problems, including:

  • Security risks as packages sit in unattended mailrooms
  • Difficulties in collecting items during staffed reception hours
  • Tremendous delays waiting for staff to locate parcels
  • Privacy concerns due to double handling

With high annual growth in ecommerce and student populations, obtaining secure parcel lockers for students is an urgent requirement.

Invest in your students’ wellbeing

Our research shows us parcel lockers help you invest in your students’ wellbeing. Student accommodation staff want to have meaningful connections with all of their students, yet the onerous task of handling student deliveries makes this extremely difficult. Staff gain the freedom and capability to implement valuable activities with Groundfloor™ student accommodation parcel lockers. They are freed of the burden of package management and can connect with residents in a meaningful way for a lasting impact on your students’ wellbeing.
