The occupancy rate shows the number of rooms occupied at a particular time in a residential facility, like a hostel, hotel, or labour accommodation. The occupancy Rate can be determined by the number of rooms divided by the total number of rooms booked. The occupancy rate indicates the level of profit at any given time.

Moreover, there are no hard and fast ways to improve the occupancy levels, it depends on several factors like location, demand, and competition.

But there are several factors that we can focus on to improve the occupancy rate.
