Kinetic, the industry leader in campus housing management solutions in the UK and Ireland, announced the North American launch of its platform, KxWelcome. The student housing management solution is designed by and for housing professionals to meet the specific demands of American higher education institutions and the students they serve by elevating campus housing from transactional to transformational.
“Student housing teams, and the students and institutions they serve, deserve better. With KxWelcome, housing professionals finally have a better choice beyond the current monopolistic landscape for campus housing management,” said Luke Warren, CEO of Kinetic. “We are here to bring the best of the campus housing solution that is so overwhelmingly popular in the UK and Ireland and has been reconstituted for North America to help advance the campus housing profession and unlock the true value of campus housing.”
For more than 25 years, Kinetic has built campus management solutions that fortify housing professionals with the tools they need to advance student housing. The company, which is owned by Volaris Group, a buy-and-hold acquirer (forever!), strives to strengthen the connection between housing and student success and partners with 80% of higher education institutions in the UK and Ireland and more than 300 higher education customers.
With the introduction of KxWelcome, Kinetic is introducing a student housing solution that takes the experience from a transactional process to a transformational experience by elevating housing administrators and prioritizing student needs. Specifically, the platform:
- Prioritizes the student experience to select housing and living preferences
- Increases and improves student touchpoints for housing teams
- Eliminates unnecessary complexity for housing teams, resulting in time-saved
- Offers real-time tracking tools and technology to report on-campus housing success
“Kinetic proved a huge success for us and greatly improved the student experience leading up to and during the arrivals period,” said Vikki Welch, Associate Director, Student Living, University of Nottingham.
Kinetic just launched KxWelcome at the ACUHO-I Business Operations Conference in October. The team will also be sharing details about the rollout at the GLACUHO Annual Conference and UMR ACUHO Annual Conference in November.
“It’s exciting to bring shared lessons and successes from the UK to North American institutions, housing professionals and students,” said Danny Connor, Solutions Consultant at Kinetic. “With KxWelcome, campus housing professionals gain a partner in advancing the student experience and the institutional mission of student success.”
