Nice student housing is difficult to find. On the other hand, it is hard for investors to find suitable buildings to transform into student housing.

That is because large groups of students in a neighbourhood create a different dynamic – which is not always desirable. Nevertheless, the demand for student housing is high. A river cruise ship is not only a practical solution for housing students. After all, how fun would it be to live with fellow students on a ship for a while?
