Heijmans, together with housing corporation Stichting Woonbedrijf SWS.Hhvl and architect VenhoevenCS, has won the tender for the construction and management of 735 student homes on the grounds of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The first partial delivery of the project is scheduled for the start of the 2023-2024 academic year. Heijmans’ part of the project has a value of approximately EUR 60 million.
The plan consists of two residential tower blocks with 653 student homes. The space between the tower blocks will be used to house the (low-rise) social heart of the project, and will include 82 student homes, a shop, a creative space and spaces to be filled in consultation with students.
Vestide, the Woonbedrijf housing corporation’s student accommodation division, will be responsible for renting out and managing the homes for a period of 50 years. The project is part of TU/e’s campus vision and will soon be a vibrant community for Dutch and international students in green surroundings with a high level of living comfort.
In the coming months, the parties involved will develop the project plans in more detail. We will do this with input from TU/e students. Various functions such as living, studying and relaxing will then be combined in an attractive setting to stimulate cooperation and encounters.
