Student Factory & Witco
Student Factory was created in 2018 by VINCI Construction. As a new concept in student residences, Student Factory wishes to meet the needs of students in a better way, in the face of an offer that has become standardised.
In addition to furnished and functional apartments, all of the equipment and services have been specially designed to facilitate the life and success of residents. Co-working spaces, cafeteria, connected laundry, but also very high speed wifi connection; the residences are in tune with the times.
This is why it was essential for Student Factory to offer students an online portal which would allow them to access all the services of the residence, to communicate with other residents and to benefit from a digital bespoke concierge service.

The MonBuilding solution for ultra-connected residences
MonBuilding is an application (mobile and desktop) for a better occupant experience in buildings. It is customisable, and it adapts to the specific needs of each client and each residence, on the basis of a solid foundation of features. The precise definition of the needs is essential, which is why MonBuilding has a team of experts who support each project from A to Z.
For Student Factory, the white-label MonBuilding application must allow students to be informed of what is happening in their residence, to discuss with other residents and to benefit from a range of services. At the same time, the platform must also facilitate the management of spaces on a daily basis.
In a few days, the Student Factory application integrates:
- a feed allowing one to see and share the news and events of the student residence;
- an incident reporting and monitoring module;
- access to contacts and useful documents in the space;
- a private messaging system for conversations between students or with space managers;
- a forum and ads to facilitate interactions between residents;
- a manager interface with statistics and real-time data on the use of services.
In addition to these features, MonBuilding will also bring together all the services offered in the residences (laundry, reservation of common areas, copying services, concierge, etc.) owing to a highly customisable marketplace, the integration of third-party APIs and payment management in the app.
Why Student Factory chose MonBuilding
An advanced management interface
The application created by MonBuilding is now available to students from all residences in France. Several dozen messages, classified ads and events are exchanged there every day, making the platform a must-have for the “Student Factory” experience.
