University allocates dorm rooms via big data
    2018-08-22  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

NANJING University has collected incoming freshmen’s living habits, hobbies and other personality traits through online questionnaires for the second year, generating big data which will help to precisely arrange compatible students to live together.

The university launched the online questionnaires in early August, containing not only survey options, such as study and rest timetables, air conditioner preferences and personal hygiene habits, but also preferred products and interests.

The university assured them that the data collected only would be used in the allocation of dormitories.

About 80 percent of the freshmen have finished the online questionnaires voluntarily by far, said Li Hao who is in charge of enrollment at the university.

Li said that the university will adopt the latent factor model algorithm to deal with the big data, and this algorithm will help match students with similar mindsets, instead of random choices.

The university started using big data in distributing dormitories for freshmen last year. A recent survey showed that students lived together more harmoniously due to the new system.

“When my campus life started last year, I was really scared. Especially, I didn’t know what dormitory life would be like. It was my first time living in a dormitory,” a sophomore surnamed Zhu said. She had no idea that a room full of girls could get along that well.
