Being in campus seems fulfilling, but sometimes when you run out of cash, it’s agonizing that you have to call your parents over and over again that you want money to run even your smallest errands.
Well, here are 9 hustles you can successfully run and manage while on campus to sustain yourself.
1. Laundry/ Cleaning services
Many campus students are lazy and don’t feel like doing their own washing. So you can step in with a washing machine and with affordable fees, the business will be a success.
If you can get a spot to set up your gaming centre on campus, the better, if you get one around campus too, the better. Students who like playing games like Fifa will always spend the majority of their time there as you rake in money.
This business though requires one to start as a group but if you are financially stable, why not go solo.
This is one of the best ways to earn money while on campus. Many companies are looking for students in Kenyan university with good writing skills. If you are good in grammar and language, then this could be a perfect opportunity for you to make some cash on the side. You can mint up to Ksh 1,000 -1500 per day
4. Bike renting
You can start a bike empire where you rent out bikes and people pay for them according to the time they stayed with them. This business is lucrative on campus because the students want to go to hikes, racing, bike “road trips” and so on and so forth.
You can partner up with friends and start a cloth/ shoe line where you sell quality products at a comrade’s price. Once the business is on track, your profits will leap jump and you won’t regret a day.
6.Social media marketer
If you love spending time on social media, then you should learn how to mint money out of it. Some companies “hunt” for people to manage their social media pages and pay you just like any normal job. Here you can just do your work at the comfort of your phone, anywhere, anytime.
7.Printing and Photocopying services
You have in one way or the other found yourself in photocopying, binding or printing area because campus works overwhelmingly require one to do so.
With such business, you can run it, two people, concurrently or when somebody is in class, another one runs it.
8. Car Washing
This one looks odd but look, some students make a killing by washing their lectures’ cars; they take the advantage that the lecturers don’t have time to go to a carwash and wash their car while they are in lectures. This kind of hustle requires one to start as a club or a group of around four people to successfully unlock its potential.
9. Doing Artistic work/Talent
If you have a talent say, drawing, singing or any other talent you may have, you can use that to earn money. You can draw your paintings and sell them, or perform at campus events and get paid.
The list is endless, it’s just how you push yourself to do something that makes the difference now.
