4 Ways Schools Benefit from Cell Phone Charging StationsHilary Walke
It’s back-to-school-time! goCharge has been super busy deploying hundreds of cell phone charging stations in and around university campuses, libraries, student unions, and high schools. Our list of facilities grows every year, and we’re more inspired than ever by the commitment of School/Administration to provide the vital need of cell phone charging stations to its students. See below for a list of 4 ways schools and universities can benefit from cell phone charging stations.
- Keep your students safer
No student should ever feel alone or afraid on campus, especially without a charged cell phone battery. Students tend to leave their chargers at home when they go out at night, or even during the day as well due to back to back schedules and lack of outlets in classrooms, which leaves their cell phone batteries depleting with each passing hour. Whether at night or during the day, there should be cell phone charging as far as the eye can see so students can charge up, feel secure, and move on with their day knowing they can communicate with anyone at a moment’s notice.

- Better communication, better school experience
A vital aspect of student life is communication — not only with each other, but with teachers, professors, faculty, student groups, and more. If there are class updates or schedule changes, or a group study location change, or an update on an exam, students need to use their smartphones to check in and communicate on demand.
- Improve library functionality
As one of the most populated buildings on campus, it’s no surprise libraries can get filled up — particularly during exam week. Many school struggle to keep up with the power outlet demand that is needed by students. Cell phone charging stations are the remedy to the outlet issue. Libraries can offer a variety of different “outlet hubs” (charging stations) around the facility — and since goCharge charging stations come with secure lockers, students may leave their phones in the lockers, charging, while they do research, meet with a group, or catch up on reading. No longer are the days of students hovering over each other to reach an outlet, or crowding a space with lines to charge up next — cell phone charging stations relieve traffic flow and stress in libraries.
- Keep your students safer
The list goes on—there are dozens of reasons why students, universities, and libraries need charging stations, now. These 4 reasons sum up some of the major ways in which a student’s life is vastly improved with cell phone charging stations.
