The Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz is building a new residential complex for the students of the TUM Camus Straubing. A new building with approx. 85 residential units is to be built in the Stutzwinkel construction area.
The Studentenwerk launched a Europe-wide architectural competition for the planning. You can see the submitted contributions in the virtual competition exhibition.
Favorable rental prices for students in need
Thanks to public funding, the rent for a residential unit is very affordable. In addition, there are the usual operating costs from fast internet connection to sustainable heat supply. Students in need and international students can take advantage of these rental conditions; for example, all BAföG recipients count as needy.
Sustainable and integrative: construction of the planned residential complex
The residential complex is to be built in accordance with the KfW 55 standard. This is one of the reasons why the Studentenwerk developed a sustainable concept for the energy supply. The construction of the residential complex is particularly important for the international students in Straubing. They are often at a disadvantage when looking for affordable housing because landlords prefer long-term tenancies.
Living together supports integration and language acquisition right from the start. The Studentenwerk also promotes integration through international tutors. These are students who are specially trained for this task and who offer a leisure program for other students, including international cooking evenings or excursions.
