Network Cum Laude


Introducing “Network Cum Laude”: International platform for student housing 

  • Ger­man Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG and Dutch Sticht­ing DUWO inten­si­fy col­la­bo­ra­ti­on
  • Launch of an inter­na­tio­nal non-pro­fit alli­ance made up of ope­ra­tors of stu­dent apart­ment buil­dings, ser­vice pro­vi­ders and uni­ver­si­ties
  • The focus is on housing and added-value offe­rings for stu­dents in Euro­pe 

Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG and DUWO, the lea­ding pro­vi­der of stu­dent apart­ments in the Net­her­lands, have laun­ched the “Net­work Cum Lau­de” (NCL) plat­form for coope­ra­ti­on: an inter­na­tio­nal non-pro­fit alli­ance made up of ope­ra­tors of stu­dent apart­ment buil­dings, uni­ver­si­ties and ser­vice pro­vi­ders. The aims of the net­work include clo­se inter­na­tio­nal coope­ra­ti­on for the crea­ti­on of a broad ran­ge of stu­dent housing solu­ti­ons, the pro­found exch­an­ge of know­ledge at all stra­te­gic and ope­ra­tio­nal levels and the con­so­li­da­ti­on of stu­dent-rele­vant ser­vices. It will also work with uni­ver­si­ties at the inter­na­tio­nal level to deve­lop addi­tio­nal semi­nar trai­ning and qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on offe­rings, for exam­p­le during aca­de­mic holi­days. All the part­ners in the coope­ra­ti­on will also pro­fit from impro­ved access to inves­tors and the opti­mi­sa­ti­on of resour­ces. 

Roman Diehl, Mem­ber of the Exe­cu­ti­ve Board of Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG and respon­si­ble for Mar­ke­ting & Sales, says: “Like the “Star Alli­ance” in the air­line indus­try, “Net­work Cum Lau­de” will crea­te a new dri­ve and offer advan­ta­ges in the fields of stu­dent housing and ser­vices. We are plea­sed to launch the inter­na­tio­nal qua­li­ty plat­form with DUWO as our foun­ding part­ner. We are curr­ent­ly enga­ged in pro­mi­sing dis­cus­sions with other inter­na­tio­nal part­ners, too. On the one hand, Net­work Cum Lau­de offers all stu­dents a ran­ge of ser­vices to make their aca­de­mic life more com­for­ta­ble. For exam­p­le, by enab­ling stu­dents to chan­ge loca­ti­on wit­hout any pro­blems by offe­ring sui­ta­ble accom­mo­da­ti­on abroad or pro­vi­ding cont­acts to attrac­ti­ve employ­ers for intern­ships and care­er ent­ry. On the other hand, NCL pro­vi­des a plat­form that allows its coope­ra­ti­on part­ners to opti­mi­se uti­li­sa­ti­on and busi­ness pro­ces­ses.” 

Jan Ben­schop, CEO of DUWO: “The net­work will be of gre­at inte­rest to com­pa­nies loo­king for ear­ly cont­act with poten­ti­al gra­dua­te recruits, we can link stu­dents to future employ­ers, or take care of pla­ce­ment of brand offe­rings in an attrac­ti­ve tar­get group.” Ben­schop con­ti­nues: “Abo­ve that, our aim in par­ti­ci­pa­ting in Net­work Cum Lau­de is to make mobi­li­ty during a cour­se of stu­dy easier and to lay the foun­da­ti­ons for fur­ther inter­na­tio­nal coope­ra­ti­on that will bene­fit Dutch stu­dents abroad and inter­na­tio­nal stu­dents in the Net­her­lands. By exchan­ging inter­na­tio­nal expe­ri­en­ces we can real­ly make a dif­fe­rence in inter­na­tio­nal stan­dards of stu­dent housing.”
