Long Term Strategy for Housing

Other Housing Projects

Necessary projects

Besides the large building projects, some other necessary projects will be realized: 

  • Visual and physical assimilation of the redeveloped Technohal building and the O&O area.
  • The campus buildings which fall vacant following the relocation of the Health cluster are to be adapted for use as assessment/examination rooms. This will obviate the need to rent external accommodation for this purpose, as is currently the case.

Other relevant projects

To prioritize other relevant projects of the Long-term Housing Strategy the Executive Board requested a review committee to advise in prioritizing these projects upon the availability of sufficient financial resources. The Board is following the advice of the review committee. In march 2018 the review committee will give an advise on the priorities for 2018.

In prioritizing the subsidiary projects the review group uses the criteria below:

  • Enhancement of the university’s profile and visibility (and that of the relevant strategic themes).
  • Facilitation of personal interaction and involvement: integration and synergy within and between education, research, valorization and support activities.
  • Facilitation of experimentation (the ‘smart living’ campus) and student entrepreneurship.
  • Retention (to the greatest degree possible) of the green character of the campus and of the facilities which increase its attractiveness to students and staff, such as the sports and cultural amenities.
  • Promotion of ‘community building’ and small-scale educational concepts.
  • The desire to be a ‘home base’ for all students, and the promotion of good relations between students, student representatives and staff.
