Students halls – humane lifestyle for students
With the increasing number of students at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), the shortage of student’s accommodation in student’s halls has increased. Alongside the necessity for building new accommodation capacities an opportunity has emerged for the enforcement of new living standards that should replace outdated guidelines from the sixties. During the preparation of the project we analysed all the important elements of students accommodation in students halls. Analyses of the present conditions in existing halls were performed, including positive and negative elements. We also conducted a comparative research of student’s halls in various European countries. In conclusion a list of recommendations with real guidelines was prepared that could be used by investors when proposing new development of such buildings, as well as architects and planners.
