Parcel lockers for student accommodation

Revolutionising Australia’s student residences

Groundfloor™ student residence parcel lockers are changing the way Australian student communities handle their delivered parcels. We provide each residence with a tailored software, locker, and database solution for automated management of a wide range of deliveries. Enhance the liveability of your student accommodation with this essential amenity.  

An intelligent parcel management system

Traditionally, facility staff personally handle every parcel delivery arriving for their students each day. Staff are responsible for receiving packages from couriers, notifying students by email that their delivery has arrived, and then locating the item amongst the ever-growing mailroom pile when students are collecting. This burden is extremely costly, inefficient, and time-consuming. An intelligent parcel locker system that automates parcel delivery management has become a crucial provision.

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

Student accommodation staff are interested in making meaningful connections with all of their students, yet the onerous task of handling student deliveries makes this impossible. With a Groundfloor™ parcel management system in your student accommodation, staff gain the freedom and capability to implement valuable activities, connecting with all their residents in a meaningful way for a lasting impact on your students’ wellbeing.
