Prof. Alojzy Z. Nowak, UW Rector, and Mota-Engil Central Europe company representatives signed an agreement for construction and assembly works on a new student residence hall at the Sluzewiec Campus. This is one of  the plans under the UW Multiannual Programme. The works are starting this year.

The agreement was signed on the 2nd of December, in the Golden Hall of the Kazimierzowski Palace. The event was attended by Prof. Alojzy Z. Nowak, UW Rector, and representatives of the Mota-Engil Central Europe company: Marcin Podlecki, Plenipotentiary, and Wiktor Jabłoński, Sales and Technical Director – Building Construction.


A new UW student hall will be located within the Sulimy and Smyczkowa streets at the Sluzewiec Campus. The hall will accommodate students and doctoral students of the University of Warsaw, including foreign incomers studying and working at the University. The building is planned to host its first guests in 2024.


As Prof. Alojzy Z. Nowak, UW Rector, says, ”It is a significant project for the University of Warsaw as it concerns our students and PhD students. That student hall is the first this type of a building that is constructed from scratch under the Multiannual Programme. Moreover, other two student halls are planned to be modernised under the Programme. It remains our deep concern to provide UW students and doctoral students with the best possible conditions to work and study.”


The hall is planned to have over 130 rooms, and more than 380 guests to accommodate. Additionally, there will be group work and quite study spaces, kitchens, a common room, a laundry and a gym. The building will consist of eight storeys, i. e. seven storeys and one underground floor with a car park and technical rooms.


The building will be accessible for those with motor, hearing and vision impairment. Furthermore, it will exploit ecological technology such as photovoltaic modules. The total area of the building amounts to 13,000 m2, while its usable area is approximately 5,850 m2. The building was designed by the Projekt Praga team.


”Our buildings will use the most modern methods of environment protection. I hope this project will have an immense impact on the development of the Sluzewiec Campus as well as the University itself”, emphasised Prof. Ewa Krogulec, Vice-Rector for Development.


The signed agreement covers 24 months. The building will have been completed by the end of 2023. The general contractor will be responsible for the finishing and equipment of the rooms, as well as for the land development and small urban architecture.


The new student hall building at the Sluzewiec Campus is one of the projects of the Multiannual Programme. The aim of the Programme is to relaunch the potential of Social Sciences and Humanities, and incorporate them into the innovation and experiment programmes, reinforce the international position of the University as well as emphasise its role in the process of social and economic changes. The undertaken action covers new building structures, expansion and reconstruction of the existing ones. The Programme budget amounts to  1,000,000,000 Polish Zloty.
