The campus is undergoing constant development. This results in various building projects. Over the past few years a number of real estate projects have been completed.
The Technohal has been renovated to house the TechMed Centre. Reinforcing and maintaining the unique industrial character of the building was part of the renovation.
Renovation of Technohal was coordinated by architect Jef van den Putte, under the supervision of Campus & Facility Management.
In this video, architect Jef an den Putte discusses the renovation of Technohal with the aid of 3D animation.
Student housing, hotel and congress centre
Hogekamp is the former Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics building. After standing empty for a number of years, it has been refitted by project developer Van Wijnen to accommodate student housing, a hotel and congress centre.
The building consists of 445 studios to be let as student residences by Camelot Real Estate. Hogekamp also has a new hotel and congress centre with 72 guest rooms and the requisite meeting space.
U Parkhotel is located on Hogekamp Square. You can find further information at uparkhotel.nl.
The Start-up Hub has long been on the wish-list of the Student Union. The Start-up Hub will offer different kinds of work stations – from quiet space to cubicles (office space for a number of months).
By becoming members of the Start-up Hub students can make use of the flex workspace for a nominal fee and/or rent small office space (cubicles) for four to eight people on an annual basis.
Intrema was responsible for ensuring that the total design provides optimal daylight by integrating many glass walls and installing skylights.
The Student Union wants to enter into partnerships with businesses through the Start-up Hub, a project it has also undertaken in collaboration with Novel-T.
This is the new workspace for Engineering Technology. Growing student numbers meant the capacity of the former workspace in the Westhorst Building was insufficient to meet demand. The expansion included the creation of a wonderful workspace for students of the new joint programme in Mechanical Engineering with VU University of Amsterdam. These students will be coming to UT once every two weeks for two days of various classroom activities and they will be occupying this workspace.
The third floor of Carré is the new home base for students in Applied Physics, Chemical Science & Engineering, and Advanced Technology. About 950 square metres of space has been renovated. It now features space for studying (alone or in groups), working on projects and socialising, as well as coffee corners and offices – together creating a home base at the beating heart of the Faculty of Science & Technology. The student associations have a prominent presence, each with their own meeting room. Around these rooms are areas where students can socialise or study. This home base is also located close to the offices of teaching faculty and the Faculty Board, as well as lecture rooms and new study/project areas.
