Helsingkrona Nation

Helsingkrona Nation

A new 13-storey student accommodation building for Helsingkrona Nation. The building houses 69 apartments for so-called "buddy housing". Each apartment has two separate bedrooms and a shared kitchen and living room. On the 13th floor there is a common banquet hall with a fantastic view of Lund. In addition to housing, the ground floor houses a collective study room and a salad bar.

The aim of the project was to create new student accommodation for Helsingkrona nation, which has had around 200 students living in its existing student accommodation building since the 1950s. The nation also conducts extensive social activities, which would also be accommodated in the new building. The building's location in the middle of the LTH park aims to create a more pronounced campus feel with both residents and institutions in the area.

The building, built by Peab, was ready for occupation in August 2015. All apartments are currently rented out to students.
