How should students live in urban areas?

December 1, 2017 @ 08:15 - 10:00

Finding ways to address the lack of student housing in Copenhagen

The lack of student accommodation ranks high on the political agenda in Copenhagen. In total, the city lacks an estimated 10,000 student housing units. Although there is much urban development happening in the city right now, the shortfall in student accommodation is not decreasing as student numbers are set to increase.

The architectural community and building industry have taken up the challenge and started to suggest ways to solve this problem.

Several players on the field have put forward new proposals for new student accommodation and building types. These new ideas include Henning Larsen and NREP’s concept UMEUS, BIG’s Urban Rigger plans to make use of the harbour, Arkitema’s ideas to find additional square meters in the sky, and CPH Village’s project of providing temporary housing in developing areas.

The suggestions have led to animated discussions about the direction of future student living in the city. One of the key question is: what do different kinds of student housing mean and entail for residents, neighbours and Copenhagen as a whole?

To address these issues, BLOXHUB and the above mentioned participants, invites architects, urban planners, students and politicians to discuss and exchange opinions and deliberate potential solutions.
