Eloise begins this year studying economics and at least this year, hit the books and sleep in an container industrial overlooking a harbor. Like her other 99 students pass notes in old freight cars recycled in the new eco- campus built in Le Havre (Upper Normandy – France). Where there were once bustling with sailors and sale of fish now have books and student parties. ” The idea of settling into an old container me to grace , but actually inwardly they are studies normal . For me the best thing about this building is that all students who live here are new so it’s an opportunity to meet people , “says Eloise.
While sleeping in what was once a container may seem a priori very attractive , this new neighborhood , dubbed ‘Cité A Docks ‘ , aims to be the envy not only of Le Havre, but throughout France. Built ecological criteria and environmental , the structure boasts design cool and equipment. Containers – inmates and equipped , are arranged around aindoor garden on a metal structure of four levels connected by walkways. According to the architects responsible for its construction , the project aims to provide students with an new living space original , modern and different from traditional rooms in the university town . ”
Gone are the bland dorm rooms . Doors for inside , studies have surface 25-meter square (the rooms on campus have only 18 m2) and equipped with a bathroom, a kitchenette and a bedroom – office. They are also isolated , soundproof and have wifi . The lucky ones have balcony overlooking port . ” Outside the first impression at sight is that they are cold and uninviting , but inside is like any room. It’s even better because you have your own space, much more modern and better equipped , “said Eloise, just installed.
The ‘Cité A Docks ‘ was opened by the officers at the end of August on land donated by the City of Havre. boasts design but also of awareness eco , since it has been built following criteria of quality environmental and energy savings. Furthermore, since structures recycled have been built in six months, half the time that a residence normal . The hundred or so lucky to have managed to place in one of these containers will the envy of the campus, not only design your new home but for its price, as the cost of rent is 300 euros per month the same as that of a room in a residence.
A real bargain if one takes into account prices housing out of them . A room between 9 and 12 square meters costs an average of 500 euros. Micro to macroprices scandal. No wonder that places the ‘ Cité A Docks ‘ are exhausted in a few weeks.In addition, students may be eligible for payments for accommodation offered by the French Government , so that the final cost could be even lower. This initiative is not new in countries like Britain , Canada and Germany and Spain already has this type of construction in the Basque country . However, France is a pioneering experience .
Although at the moment are only a hundred rooms , the goal is to extend the project to other cities to alleviate the problem of university accommodation . In the Gallic country there 2.3 million students compared to 160,000 beds in nursing homes. Although this year the Government has released 13,000 new rooms for young people (8,000 new building and 5,000 rehabilitated ) , the figure is still insufficient.
