Student Halls of Residence Improved and Relet


Studentenwerk Leipzig invests 4.7 million Euro in improving two student halls of residence.

After extensive modernisation and maintenance works, two houses at student halls of residence Straße des 18. Oktober 25-33 and Johannes-R.-Becher-Straße 3-5 were reopened on schedule at the beginning of winter semester 2017/18.

With 1,100 rooms, student hall of residence 18. Oktober 25-33 is the largest housing facility of Studentenwerk Leipzig. At that facility, construction works took almost half a year and due maintenance works regarding fire prevention and house security were executed over that period as well. The overage housing forms were adapted to the current needs of students: Existing two-party flats with a small and a larger single room were reconstructed to two-party flats with breakfast kitchen and two same sized single rooms. Also three-party flats with large kitchens were newly formed as well as new single flats. The different room formations are mixed all over the house to support social living. Flooring and bathrooms were renewed as well.
