A new dimension!

From the inception of an idea to the meticulous planning phase, and from market dominance to pricing strategies, one thing remains clear - size matters. At StudentCrowd, we're committed to delivering solutions that empower your decision-making processes. Which is why we're delighted to unveil a must-have enhancement to our 'Rooms' layer of data.

Introducing room dimensions: 

Gone are the days of guessing whether a price point was related to size or if one studio was directly comparable to another. We're here to provide you with precise room dimensions, expressed in square metres for every room type.

Unveiling the new dimensions:

★ Captured by Room Type: each room type now comes with its dimensions, allowing you to visualise and strategise with greater accuracy.

★ Range of Sizes: for versatility, rooms that come in varying sizes are represented as a range, such as X-Y m². Rest assured, we're dedicated to maintaining the utmost precision, ensuring you have the most reliable information at your fingertips.

See it in action:

Seamless integration:

The new "square_metres" column seamlessly integrates within the 'Rooms' layer, positioned between the "arrangement" and "bedroom_occupancy" columns. This intuitive placement ensures that you can effortlessly integrate the new information as you explore.

Your next steps:

The latest version of our Data Dictionary contains comprehensive details about this update. 

Changes to the dataset will be activated by the first week of September so for anyone working on data dashboards please make adjustments to your data table columns and headers to ensure seamless integration.

If you're eager to dive in or have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We're here to guide you through every aspect of this exciting enhancement.


Stay data-driven, Tuely
