An increase in student registration left Wageningen University scrambling for classrooms. Building intelligence firm Lone Rooftop showed them how to optimize existing space with real-time occupancy data.

Summary

Challenges

  • Need smarter way to use space, no planned investments in new education buildings
  • Capture data to reduce underutilized classrooms and no-shows

Solutions

Results

  • Complete, accurate, 24-hour insight into occupancy of classes
  • Increased capacity 15% to accommodate growing student body, with no real estate investment
  • Reduced no-shows to an all-time low of 3-5%, with an industry average of over 20%
  • Implementation of PIE and CLOCKS in process in over half of the Netherlands' universities

What they're saying

"The timetabling team can see at a glance which rooms are being used and how full they are. So, they can schedule 15% more classes."
