New-build housing

If you're looking for something new

In the Netherlands, student housing will often be something along the lines of a well-established shared family-style house in town that has its endearing eccentricities. But we do actually do new-build housing as well. In some cases, we develop new housing in collaboration with Woonbedrijf, our parent housing association. This usually involves placing different types of housing alongside each other. We also have student-only developments. You can view our latest new builds here.

735 Student housing units on TU/e campus

The demand for student housing is high. To meet some of that demand, student housing provider Vestide, part of Woonbedrijf, is building 735 student apartments on the Technical University Eindhoven (TU/e) campus. They will be located on the former site of the Pavilion, TU/e’s first building from 1956. The Pavilion was demolished circularly, so we can reuse some parts during construction.

The overall plan consists of two residential towers and a student village. The tower on the west side will have 278 student apartments, and the east tower will consist of 371 apartments. Both towers are about 50 meters tall (16 residential floors). A “student village” will be built between the two towers, featuring 86 two-level houses distributed over five streets. These will primarily be group homes with six or eight student rooms.

The tower on the west side will feature:

  • 21 group homes for four people with a common living room, kitchen and bathroom, for a total of 84 student rooms with an area of 14 m2;
  • 7 group homes for four people with a common living room, kitchen and bathroom, for a total of 28 rooms with an area of 15 m2;
  • 100 studios for one person up to 23 years old, featuring a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 24 m2;
  • 12 studios for one person from 23 years old, featuring a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 24 m2;
  • 54 apartments for two people, with a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 37 m2.

The tower on the east side will feature:

  • 28 group homes for six people, with a common living room, kitchen and bathroom (168 student rooms). 28 of these have an area of 14 m2, 112 have an area of 16 m2 and 28 have an area of 17 m2;
  • 77 studios for one person up to 23 years old, featuring a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 24 m2;
  • 96 studios for one person from 23 years old, featuring a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 24 m2;
  • 30 apartments for two people, with a private kitchen and bathroom and a total area of 37 m2.

The low-rise buildings will feature:

  • 5 group homes for six people with a common living room, kitchen and bathroom, for a total of 30 student rooms with an area of 15 m2;
  • 7 group homes for six people with a common living room, kitchen and bathroom, for a total of 56 student rooms with an area of 15 m2;

In addition to the houses, there is also a mix of spaces that encourage and invite students to seek each other out, which makes a significant contribution to the well-being of the residents.

The first floor of the towers and at the “heads” of the student village, a boulevard on the water (blue carpet) and the greenery will soon form the social heart of the community. This will include a “Maker space”, meeting spaces, facilities and other spaces and locations we will design with the students. The floors will also have common areas where students can meet.

Community building starts now

The student housing is not ready yet, but Vestide is talking with students anyway, which will help establish the community. Students have already participated in thinking about various issues concerning the new housingproject. This effort is now being expanded, and Vestide is setting up a student community to help brainstorm, participate and co-decide on the further implementation of the plan under the name LOT. Vestide will focus primarily on what is needed to encourage and invite students to meet. Read more about it here.

Finished: Havenhof, 56 centrally-located student units

Location, location! In Eindhoven city centre we created 56 student units and 38 family homes in a joint effort with Woonbedrijf. Our student housing is located closest to town, on the Vestdijk. Stratumseind is only a few minutes' walk away, and the train station and universities are about five minutes away by bike.

Check out this location with Google Maps.

Havenhof student accommodation front

Student rooms

A room here will typically cost around 200 euros per calendar month, excluding service charges. Each is about 15 m2 in size and is part of a group of five sharing the facilities, which are the living room with kitchen, shower room and toilet. There are three such groups, so 15 rooms in total.

Independent studios

The 41 independent studios measure about 23 to 26 m2 each, and feature their own living/sleeping area with kitchen, shower room and toilet. And of course you get your own front door. The studios will typically cost around 400 to 425 euros per month, excluding service charges.

Finished: SPACE-S

Residents were given the opportunity to design this new neighbourhood and its 402 housing units themselves! The exciting result: we've now got a lovely new area with housing in all shapes and sizes and engaged residents to boot. On the fascinating Strijp-S terrain, Eindhoven's creative hub!

Student rooms and studios

SPACE-S contains 86 student rooms in groups of four or six, as well as 57 independent studios. What's more, you'll have access to communal areas, outdoor spaces and roof gardens too.

Apply for a spot in SPACE-S

The procedure here is slightly different. In the building process for SPACE-S, future residents were given the opportunity to earn points by contributing ideas. These points could be used to already set aside and subsequently rent the home of their preference. So a bit of a different system, which we'll be hanging on to. If you would like to be part of SPACE-S, there are sessions for visitors you can attend to apply for a spot.

This is how you join SPACE-S!

Finished: Aurora

In summer 2016, this student residence on the TU/e campus welcomed its first batch of students. The building features 303 housing units: student rooms, small and more spacious studios and a flat, with residents sharing a communal area. The housing units all come fully furnished and are geared towards international students who are only in Eindhoven for a shorter period of time (short stay). This means you can only apply for accommodation here through the TU/e.

Finished: Cederlaan

A striking and colourful building adjacent to the Strijp-S terrain, the Cederlaan complex features rooms, studios and flats for students. Some of the accommodation is intended specifically for international students who are only in Eindhoven for a shorter period of time (short stay). The other housing units are available to all applicants. Which is great, as offers do pop up quite regularly! Keep checking for offers on our website.
