Full-time college education is becoming less and less affordable and housing is one of the big costs faced by students. Springwise has covered several innovative solutions to the problem of affordable student accommodation. We have seen a community housing scheme in Canada that connects students looking for an economic living arrangement with over 50’s living alone, and a care home in the Netherlands that offers students free accommodation in exchange for 30 hours voluntary work. Now offering a new solution is Urban Rigger, a company which has used shipping containers stacked on a floating base to create low-cost studio apartments for students.
