Stegreif | Student housing around the world

  Office building with sofas and round carpet in the middle © Martin Braun  

Student life is an essential part of studying. In order to be able to enjoy it fully in foreign surroundings, suitable accommodation is an important basis: whether it's a hall of residence, a shared flat or a flat. But how do students actually live in other countries?

As part of the impromptu project, the students dare to look beyond national borders and consider student life abroad. Based on given parameters, they research and examine traditional student housing and new trends in a country of their choice.

The collected findings are prepared graphically and textually and summarised and presented on a poster. The aim of the seminar is to gain insights into student housing around the world and to identify new housing trends.
