stanza living


Living in Stanza Living residences is a wholesome and holistic experience in itself. Their only priority is the well being, comfort, and convenience of their residents, which they ensure through a host of facilities and services.

Here are the top ten reasons why staying at a Stanza Living residence is different from staying at your regular PGs:

You are their top priority: The people who will take care of you — all of them professionally trained to tend to each student’s need and requirements will ensure you have a smooth transition and settling down journey. Their aim is to provide you with a home, not a hostel. They will work around your time to ensure you come back to a bright and clean home.

High standard of living: All Stanza Living products are maintained regularly to look as good as new. Handpicked furniture, fittings and appliances, professional housekeeping and laundry services, 100% power backup and undisrupted Internet service are some of the services they stand by.
Good food=good life: The way to a student’s heart is probably through good food! And Stanza Living understands this like no one else does. They tie up with high-grade food vendors who use sanitary, high-quality ingredients and produce. Specific dietary requirements are also kept in mind while ensuring your belly monster is always satisfied.

Safety is not equal to restriction: Stanza Living ensures that you have a safe, hospitable environment in a new city and thus takes all necessary precautions like 24/7 CCTV cameras, security guards, biometric entry/exit for safety. As young adults, students often don’t like their movements to be curtailed or monitored. Stanza Living does away with age-old policies and wardens and gives students the freedom to a flexible entry-exit timing.

Listening is key: Sometimes negotiating with your PG owners can be difficult. However, Stanza Living is different. You can lodge your valuable feedback, opinion, complaints on the Stanza App and thereafter swift action is taken by their team.

Quality compliance matters: Stanza residences are ISO 9001:2015 compliant. They run the residences as a professionally managed service with compliance to statewide and central government regulations, including fair salary as per the Minimum Wage Act.

Being Social: They have an entire vertical called Stanza Social that enthusiastically organises year-round engagement activities, movie nights, run inter-residence competitions, celebrate birthdays with plans city-wide outings to give students the much-needed breathing space amongst all the academic pressure.

Planning for your future: Staying at Stanza Living PGs also means that your academics and career planning is also boosted. Stanza Springboard offers resume building and skill development training, hosts networking events across a spectrum of industries and also helps you find internships and placements.

Technology for People: Stanza Living fits in a technology-driven world with their Stanza App (available on Android and iOS) that can be used to pay your rent, register feedback and complaints and navigate across properties on their interactive map, check out the week’s meal menu, access their SOS button and much more!

Get Those Discounts!: Living in Stanza Living means that you will be a part of a Stanza ecosystem where their tie-ups with Zomato, UrbanClap, Looks Salon, Anytime Fitness as well as local cafes, restaurants, general stores, stationery stores and chemists means that you can get student discounts here with your Stanza Living IDs!

Stanza Living is one of the many initiatives by the IIT-IIM alumni pool, yet with its use of the latest and greatest technology, professionally managed stack of services, and community living concepts, it is disrupting the student housing market at its very roots.

It would be unfair to tag Stanza Living as a ‘PG’. It is indeed a unique living experience. It is one of the most digitised accommodations in the Indian market today for college students. The use of innovation and technology to ensure better living has resulted in a connected Stanza ecosystem through the internet of things. Here are 5 ground-breaking things that Stanza brings to the student accommodation market:

  1. Stanza App

Unlike the dictatorial PG landlords, Stanza believes in taking commands from you through their app! It serves the purpose of not only getting the pulse of your needs all the time but also of giving you quick updates about the latest developments in your residence. It increases the efficiency of the staff at Stanza residences and leaves the students more satisfied.

  1. Flexible Policies and Entry-Exit Timings

Stanza believes in minimizing human interference in your daily schedule. It has completely done away with wardens and archaic policies. Stanza gives you the freedom to choose flexible entry and exit timings so that you don’t have to deal with an irrational argument every time you’re late. Even when you have just been stuck with classes, you know presenting your case to your warden would be just like talking to the wall. However, Stanza does not believe in such constraints and arguments.

  1. A Dedicated Maintenance Staff

While you spend years in your college succeeding and holding busy positions, Stanza understands that there is only this much of energy that you have in a day. Stanza wants you to focus on your studies and ambitions while it takes care of all your ‘household’ duties with a dedicated maintenance staff. There is a separate team to take care of laundry, daily cleaning, bathroom cleaning, deep cleaning, cooking, laundry and security so that these do not interfere with your daily duties.

4. Technology Enabled Operations

Stanza believes in making all the processes at the residence easier with the use of technology:

  • A smarter internet connection that combines high speed and a 24-hour backup support so that you’re always connected to the world. You will also be provided with quick and cutting-edge solutions to any network failures.
  • There is hi-tech security in all Stanza residences. Geo-fencing and motion sensors are used to keep a check on any unsanctioned entry. 24-hour central command centre and an ever-ready rapid response team is at your beck and call for emergency situations.
  • A seamless consumer experience is provided to all residents with Stanza’s on-boarding and KYC processes, which are paperless. One of the most hassle-free and transparent processes that Stanza supports is automated payments and the subsequent real-time invoicing updates.
  • Stanzanet is the intranet service that keeps all the Stanzens connected. It is always at your service to make community living a close and delightful affair.
  1. Machine Learning Algorithm and Feedback Management

Stanza understands that every individual is different and has his/her own preferences. To make your life better at Stanza, it has put machine learning to the noble cause of understanding your unique preferences- from food to lifestyle choices. Their amenities and services are maintained through a proactive loT enabled system. This also minimizes food wastage. Stanza technology adapts to your daily needs and way of life, and not the other way round.

In spite of that, if you face an issue, you are given the power to voice out feedback and complaints about anything you’re not satisfied with, at Stanza. Their seamless technology allows them to identify and address issues faster than ever before. Once your complaint is registered it provides you with real-time tracking of your complaint status and is sure to address it with swift actions.

Relocating to a new city can be difficult and nerve-racking. When everything including the food, the places and its people seem alien, all one wishes for is a sense of belonging, of fraternity and of comfort.

Merely after a month of living in my Paying Guest (PG) accommodation, I was devastated because I knew that the glorious days of living comfortably with my parents was over. However, not every out-station student shared this same feeling of resentment. My friend, Ishita, seemed to enjoy her time in her accommodation. In fact, while all of us would look forward to holidays and couldn’t wait to book our flights to our hometowns, she would often say that she’d miss all this fun at home.

One day, she took me to Stanza Living. That day, I understood why!

To cut to the chase and help out-station students searching for accommodation, I have noted 7 broad points that struck me most about Stanza Living.


Incredible Food

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear ‘pg food’? While ‘bad’, ‘stale’ and ‘unbearable’ were some of the words that had occurred to me, ‘mess’ is the word that had occurred to my counterparts who lived in the hostel mess.

It is a misconception that PGs and hostels offer ‘healthy’ food. What actually happens, after a few weeks of having the same food in a routine, is that students get bored and start eating out, ordering in, or just rely on Maggi.

While I used to show up in college with pangs of hunger still troubling me (since I would often skip the terrible breakfast served in my PG), my friend Ishita always showed up well rested and well fed. When she told me that Stanza offers 4 meals as part of the monthly rent, at least in her residence, I was quite taken aback. While I had to store coffee and tea in thermos bottles, the 24*7 tea and coffee vending machine at Stanza would come to Ishita’s rescue when she would stay up late to study during exams. While I would order-in food at night and then wait for what would seem like ages for the food to get delivered, Ishita just had to run down to the all-night canteen to devour the most tempting of treats. In fact, she told me how the residences would often surprise them with a special dish or put out a new dish for student to try and give feedback!

And that is not all. The ‘Stanza App’ and its algorithms available at her fingertips would minimize food wastage and would enable customization of the food to meet the resident’s preferences.
Common Areas Equipped With Foosball And Pool Table

As a fresher in college, I remember feeling extremely nostalgic and homesick. I longed for my grandmother’s food and her warmth. I longed for my mother’s hands around me, as she would caress my hair. I longed for everything that reminded me of home. My seniors had told me that making friends in my PG was important because of the proximity of everyday living. However, most PGs, including mine, offer little opportunity for intra-PG interaction.

In sharp contrast to this state of affairs, when I visited Stanza, I was greeted by a pleasant surprise. I saw that people had occupied the lively dining areas and comfortable lounge rooms to chill with their friends, the dedicated fitness corners, foosball tables, and other entertainment units were always a witness to friendly challenges – Stanza provided countless opportunities to gel with fellow residents. In fact, it is imperative for all PG proprietors, like Stanza, to design spaces that make it conducive for students to meet and interact for an overall well-being and to feel connected.


Stanza Social: Monthly Events

In today’s modern world, things are changing and machines are making us more gadget-dependent. Face-to-face interaction is becoming a thing of the past, as students are taking to communicating via social media platforms, chat messages and special apps on their smartphones.

However, residents at Stanza are encouraged to leave their smartphones, do away with interacting on virtual media spaces, and get down to real things in life, courtesy of the ‘Stanza Social’ privileges. These privileges encompass fun events and a calendar of activities which include movie screenings, adventure activities, birthday celebrations, intra-stanza competitions, game nights, fairs and fests that never let the fun down.

Apart from superior living facilities, ‘Stanzens’ have a range of exciting activities available to them that are opportunities for learning and healthy socializing.

And in case you absolutely want to step out for an evening out with your friends, Stanza comes to your rescue again with its privilege discounts and offers at local restaurants, salons, and other vendors. For instance, Stanza has partnered with leading service providers like Zomato, Urbanclap, Anytime Fitness, Looks Salon, and many more, all of whose services are accessible to ‘Stanzens’ at discounted rates.


Stanza Springboard: Networking And Internship Opportunities

As a college student, we all understand the importance of a strong resume. Internships are key to building experience as a student, since employers are more likely to hire someone with work experience rather than someone with a generic resume, lacking experience. Stanza Living understands this and works on this need to facilitate the residents’ way into the job-market. Through its collaboration with coaching institutes and professional certification providers, Stanza offers its residents access to unique internship programs, journal subscriptions, networking opportunities, soft skills workshops and counseling sessions which are factors considered important for student training and personality development.


Flexible Entry And Exit Through Stanza Student App

When I passed my XII boards, I remember feeling pumped for the freedom that the experience of college life would bring. It felt exciting and liberating! I was told that in college, it would be up to me to decide when and where to study, to find my classes and get there on time and to hold myself accountable overall.

When I started living in my PG, I noticed how the PG landlords were always trying to be nosy and came from an age-old mindset of moral policing.

What gives Stanza an edge over PG accommodation is that it does not believe in confining their residents. Stanza beautifully balances freedom and responsibility, unlike PGs or rented apartments. It does this through the technology-driven ‘Stanza App’, which provides new-age security solutions to the issue of students’ safety. This app works in coordination with a system of multi-layered security at Stanza’s entry and exit points which involve the use of biometric access cards, CCTV cameras along with incidence based alerts and a rapid response team. While this ensures safety of the students, Stanza’s flexible and student-friendly policies ensure students their rightful freedom. Students can conveniently apply for a night-out through the Stanza student app without arguing with any wardens or landlords.


Professional Housekeeping Staff

Effective housekeeping is an ongoing operation to keep the surroundings spic and span but this extremely basic requirement is often missed out and replaced by hit-and-miss cleaning done occasionally.

Housekeeping, as most people understand it, doesn’t just include keeping a house neat and orderly, maintaining floors free of slip and trip hazards and removing of waste materials but also requires paying attention to important details such as the layout of the entire space, the needs of the residents, as well as ensuring high standards of hygiene and sanitation.

I had often seen Ishita posting Instagram stories of her room and living areas. When you take a closer look at the pictures, you would see how the spaces are well-maintained and look so lively. The place screams “aesthetic”. This is because, besides keeping the residences fully furnished and equipped, Stanza boasts of a professionally trained housekeeping staff who run all the domestic chores, from on-demand room cleaning to maintenance and upkeep.

This team of housekeeping staff is not only passionate about cleanliness and hygiene but is also caring enough to tend to different needs of residents, thereby making Stanza a space students would love to come back to everyday.


‘Stanzanet’: Intranet Services To Connect You With Fellow Stanzens

Stanza’s ‘Intranet’ services are devised to keep the residents connected to each other, or their fellow ‘Stanzens’ Whether used for late night hunger pangs or last-minute notes exchange, the ‘Stanzanet’ comes to a student’s rescue even in the wee hours of the night by connecting a Stanzen to fellow resident mates and giving them a family in the new city!
