Student Experience expands management portfolio with 750 student apartments in Leiden
Student Experience concluded a management contract with Yisheng Development for the management of 750 student apartments including 150 short-stay apartments for a new part of the Campus Leiden Bio Science Park: the entrance area. Next to that, Yisheng Development and Student Experience will work out the function of the community manager for the management of the entrance area together.
Johan Verweij, CEO and founder of Student Experience: “The expansion of our portfolio in Leiden fits within our ambition to continue growing the coming years. We are proud that we are part of this advanced development. Student Experience in Leiden is our first student complex which we will manage outside of Amsterdam. With this project, we extend our portfolio to over 3.000 student apartments and hotel rooms.” Yisheng Development and Student Experience are content with this collaboration. Student Experience offers housing, service, hospitality, safety, and atmosphere. Living at a location that is managed by Student Experience means living with hotel facilities where the experience of the resident is centralized.
After an elaborate selection procedure, the University of Leiden and the municipality of Leiden chose Yisheng Development for the development of the entrance area, a new component of the Campus Leiden Bio Science Park. In the new entrance area around the Universitair Sportcentrum there will be rental housing, shops, restaurants, and other collective facilities. An important aspect of the project is the creating of a community between students, residents, and companies at the campus. This ambition stems from the masterplan from the university and municipality for the further development of the Leiden Bio Science Park. The community arises by adding collective areas, for in and outside. The entrance area will be low-traffic with pedestrians and cyclists as main users.
Student Experience in Leiden is expected to open her doors in 2022.
