Student housing providers will build more communal student homes with one front door, several rooms and shared facilities. In so doing, they are breaking away from the building trend in which student apartments have their own bathroom and kitchen. This is reported today in the Volkskrant.
Kences is discussing a plan of action with Donner, the Dutch Minister of Internal Affairs. The corporations have made a pitch for four to six rooms behind one front door, which - according to Buitenhuis - is a very popular layout and also practical should the demand from students subside. He rules out the comeback of the student-flat of the seventies, such as the star-flats in Wageningen.
