The Hall of Residence No. 7 with 380 places for students and doctoral candidates is built between Sulimy and Puławska streets. The first tenants are scheduled to move into the hall in the second half of 2024.
The new hall is located between Sulimy and Puławska streets, within one of the three University of Warsaw’s campuses – Służewiec Campus. The main entrance of the building is from Sulimy Street, opposite to “Sokrates” University Hotel. In the vicinity there is a number of buildings that seat various faculties and other University units.
The aim of the investment is to create new accommodation for the academic community of the University of Warsaw. The building will house students and doctoral candidates. The construction work is scheduled to be completed in March 2024.
The building consists of seven aboveground storeys and one underground storey of 13,000 square meters total. The hall will accommodate approximately 380 persons. In addition, the tenants will be able to use widely available kitchens, laundries, etc. On each storey there will be at least one apartment with a kitchen for residents with disabilities.
Pro-ecological and energy-saving technologies have been applied in the construction, e.g. photovoltaic systems, motorised outdoor roller blinds, external one-layer insulated walls.
“At the University of Warsaw, we are constantly working on solutions to increase the number of student halls of residence, both as part of new developments and by modernising the already existing buildings. The new hall of residence will be available to students as early as the summer of 2024. The method of allocating places and the cost of accommodation, in line with other UW halls, will be determined by the Rector’s and Chancellor’s authorities in consultation with the Students’ Council,” Prof. Sławomir Żółtek, the UW Vice-Rector for Students and Quality of Teaching, emphasises.
Currently, the interior finishing works are being carried out on the construction site. They include the installation of suspended ceilings, painting, laying carpets, installing plasterboard and door carpentry. All the necessary services to the building have been provided, and the heating network has been commissioned. The delivery and installation of furniture has begun. The elevation work is also close to completion. External activities related to the construction of access roads, car parks and the development of green areas are underway.
“The hall of residence under construction, like other University of Warsaw’s investments, is not only a place to live, study and work, but also an oasis of harmony with nature. Sustainable solutions are integrated into everyday life here, creating a friendly environment for both people and the planet. Starting with energy-efficient lighting systems, a bicycle park, photovoltaic modules and efficient waste segregation, the hall is becoming a model of ecological functionality,” Prof. Ewa Krogulec, the UW Vice-Rector for Development, says.
