Affordable rooms in Potsdam, Brandenburg an der Havel and Wildau are in high demand. Our goal is to offer low-rent housing to as many students as possible while taking into account the ever-changing demands for student living. Therefore, comprehensive refurbishment and renovation measures in the housing complexes are just as important as new construction projects.
In autumn 2019 we opened a new student residence on campus Golm of Potsdam University The new 308-bed residential hall for students will be completed by Winter Term 2019/20.
The 19 million EUR project is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Culture of the state of Brandenburg.
Meanwhile the supplementary budget of the State of Brandenburg is decided. That means for the Studentenwerk Potsdam a full financing of another hall of residence for students near the Hochschulring in Wildau (see image on the right side) of an amount of approximately 9,5 Mio. Euro.
On the land, which lies toward the residence that was finished in 2012, the new construction can be planned from now on.
Around 20 million euros extra are needed for building new facilities and in addition around 15 million euros for the renovation of our existing buildings! In order to finally make this urgent demand heard, since September 2017 we have participated in the campaign "Kopf braucht Dach - Wohnraum für Studierende. Bezahlbar". (Head needs roof – living spaces for students. But affordable).’’ This campaign was started by the German Studentenwerk, in which the 58 individual Studentenwerke from all over Germany are working together as one.
