15 Businesses You Can Start On Campus That You Don't Know About by ultrazone(m): 5:28am On Oct 17, 2015
• SELLING OF MANUALS
The Campus can never be separated from manuals and hand outs from lectures. You can utilize that opportunity to be the class agent for these manuals. The moment it is being handed out by the lecturer, you take the pain and run the photocopy for everyone interested. And you charge them for your service. You don’t even have to invest a dime, simply make a deal with the business centre and they will allow you run the copies on credit, which you pay later after you must have sold the manuals to your fellow students. This is one of the potential small business ideas for college students.


• HELP OTHERS WITH THEIR NOTES
A practical example of good business ideas on a college campus is helping others academically. As we all know that what most lecturers do is to come to class and give lengthy notes without even an explanation, which is always an issue for some students who write so slowly. You can play on their weakness and charge them for writing their note for them. You charge them high as not writing is not an easy task.



• CLOTH PRESSING
You don’t necessary have to wash here as that could be quite tedious. Simply get your colleagues that will want to look good but are lazy to iron their shirts. Charge them per shirt and you will be surprised how many people will turn up for your services.

• SOUP COOKINGThis will go well for the ladies. You know how amateur guys are when it comes to preparing soups and so on. You could offer to do this and get paid. It could be run as a home service or you have a spot where they all can come and get their soups cooked. You can even go the extra mile of assisting them in getting the ingredients. With this, you charge them more.

• PEPPER BLENDING
Are you looking for university campus business ideas? Do you have a blender and you even do nothing with it? Why not turn it into a money making machine and start helping your hostel mates to get their pepper blended at a fee. You charge them for the level of smoothness they desire and you will surely get some returns through this.

• DISH WASHING
You can assist the lazy students in your hostel to do this and don’t be surprised how many of them will sign up for your service. It might sound odd, but you don’t need to care as your focus is making extra income for yourself.

• HOUSE PAINTING
This might require some expertise, but at least it is not some task that is so hard to accomplish. But if you have the skills, why not utilise it and start making money with it. Painting is one profitable business ideas while in campus.

• ERRANDS
Another good example of college campus business ideas is to run errands for other students. Don’t consider it as a slave-job or whatsoever, you simply package yourself and you will be respected. You can just open a twitter handle and let orders be made online by anyone that needs your service. They tweet at you and you get what they want for them and you are paid.


• ASSIGNMENTS
Need business ideas while in university? You can assist your colleagues with their assignments if you are well-versed with the internet. You simply gather a lot of information on the given assignment and you sell unique answers to each of them. This even makes you charge them more. Trust me, this is one lucrative example of business ideas on a college campus.

• SPACE BOOKING
Some people are late comers. Make money from them by helping them book a space at the front row in class and you are being paid for this service. This is a classical type of innovative business ideas for college students.

• PHOTO BACKGROUND
This is something have not noticed on campuses. You can have beautiful backdrops made of leather o flex that people can use in snapping photos. You simply copyright it with the SUG that no one will use the idea for like 2 years. People that need beautiful backgrounds for their picture will definitely have to pay you. You can even design the back drop like an event backdrop with different logos.

• CAR WASH
There are students with cars on every campus. Just go to them and help with their cars. They will even pay you more for rendering a home service on that.

• FLASH DRIVE CLEANSING
This is simply helping other students clean their flash drive with original anti-virus. Most of the flash drives around are carrying a lot of viruses simply because most students utilise fake anti-virus. You simply take the pain of purchasing an original one, which might not cost more than N10,000 and you charge everyone that needs to clean their external devices.


• COMPUTER TRAINING
Don’t be surprised that some students don’t know how to operate the computer. Offer to train them on the basic computing or even how to browse the internet and they will pay you massively for this.

• BLOG TRAINING
This is another means through which you can make a lot of money on campus. The most important thing you need to have is blogging knowledge, once you have this you are good to go. You might not even have a computer system. The training can be run at the cyber cafe for a start and as time goes on, you get your own personal PC

• LAUNDRY SERVICES
Do you have a washing machine, and then you can charge other students to use your gadget or better still run it for them and they pay you.

Nice write up but you didn't mention the most lucrative business which includes

(a) buying cloths and selling to both staff and students.

(b) Securing contracts from student associations for mini projects such as printing of receipt, customized notebooks, shirts, cooking for dinners, event organizing.

(c). Securing contracts from cooperative society within the institution. I regretted that I didn't act fast in this. I bought a rechargeable standing fan for my dad at the cost of 8,000, he took it to school and before you know it, I was called upon to buy 2, for another prof. Six months after, I heard a ASUU distributed it to all their members at a cost of 17,000. menhhhh.....I just carry hand for head in regret of not acting fast.

(d) Online internet marketing. This is what I am currently using to make few cash for my post graduate studies. Its free to begin and doesn't disturb my studies in anyway. I do it right in the corner of my room and money start running after me. If you need more info about this, pm me.

(e) There is also student work incentives by the institutions. tap into this and you won't be expecting money from home @ all times.
Thank you.

How I sincerely make money online in Nigeria as a student.

Do you know you can be paid up to 150 just for writing original articles? I listed 10 sites you can start with.

Do you know there are survey jobs that pay you steadily?

Do you know that there are better adsense alternatives?

Do you want to know about affiliate marketing?

And even more, that most so called guru hide from you and ask you to pay for.

I revealed all in this article.

Strictly for you, please after reading make a move to start something.

Helping others write notes No one will patronize you, except there are no photocopiers in that school. Space booking You said it in your post that most of those lectures just write lengthy notes without explanation. So you expect a reasonable person to still pay to book space in order to write notes? This OP is just hilarious.
