It takes money to have fun in school, and it’s no secret that tuition and other costs go up every year. To help ease the burden, a number of university students are opting to launch their own start-ups while still in school.

Here are five(5) super start-up ideas for students that cost little -to-no money that you can build.

  1. Residential cleaning services

Most students aren’t exactly known for their cleanliness. With cleaning, it’s a trust thing. When you trust someone, they’ll refer you. Cleaning homes grants you the flexibility to balance a heavy academic schedule while maintaining your job based on your own availability.

Start by offering your services to friends, family and expand to the larger community once you’ve built a reputation. With many of the large cleaning companies charging exorbitant fee for their services, students can be able to have an edge over them by offering lower prices.

One benefit of a cleaning business is that it requires little to no start-up costs. Just store a few cleaning materials in your room or ask customers to supply their own products in exchange for a lower price point.

  1. Moving services

People will always move in and out of a location. So if you’re capable of lifting a few pounds, you can also consider expanding your services to help students move in and out of campus apartments and dormitories. If you’ve got a large network already, spreading your services verbally or through social media, on-line ads, flyers and and a website can jump start your entrepreneurship for little-to-no start-up money.

  1. Child care

Good with kids? A position as a babysitter or nanny is a perfect opportunity for a ¬†student. Whether it’s taking care of kids on late night or picking them up from school, there’s a constant demand for babysitters. Babysitting involves an incredible amount of responsibility, so it’s important to have confidence in your skills as a caregiver and fully understand your job description.

  1. Tutoring

As a school student, you may want to consider tutoring other students in your area(s) of expertise. By starting a private tutoring business, you can offer sessions in the evenings and late at night. Of course, once your tutoring business takes off, you can target a wider market. You can consider posting flyers in libraries and shops. You can also advertise your services on-line and through social media or you can simply solicit referrals from people around campus.
