Metropolitan creates student hall registry
Metropolitan is developing Gdański Harward near the Gdańsk University of Technology
POLAND Warsaw-based Metropolitan Investment has announced the development of the Bookistry.com website for the reservation of rooms in private student halls throughout Poland.

The website is currently in operation but at present only serves as an information portal. “By as early as the middle of the year, it will be possible to book a room on the website and centre owners will be able to use the management module from around about September,” claims Robert Jaś, the vice-president of the board at Metropolitan Investment.

According to him substantial demand for the service can already be seen. “Especially smaller student halls want to have a simple student hall management tool, which will handle both short-term and long-term leases,” says Robert Jaś. The website will not only show students what rooms are available, but will also help build relations with students. Every student that books a room will receive a welcome package through the post, which will also include a starter package from a Polish mobile phone operator. “We will look after each student and we will talk to them,” says Robert Jaś. So far 15 residence halls have joined the website with more expected to join in future. The platform is to be free for both building owners and students in order to drive up traffic. The company is also planning to popularise the portal by creating forums on the pages of the student halls on the site. As a developer and manager Metropolitan Investment has two student halls of its own – both in Gdańsk. Gdański Harward comprises 60 studio apartments near the Gdańsk University of Technology, and Olimpijskie Apartamenty, includes 39 microapartments near the Academy of Physical Education and Sport. Both buildings are still under construction and they are to be completed between June and September this year. The company is also looking for the sites in Kraków and Warsaw to build further student halls. In H2 of this year the company is also planning to offer management services to the owners of private student halls.
