Iuav University of Venice
Posted On 23-10-2023
Six historic Venetian properties have been indicated as potential new student residences, which would increase considerably the accomodation offer in the historic centre for the student and university community (800 beds). Tha Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR) has approved the proposal submitted by the Iuav University of Venice together with the Venice City Council, the Navy and IPAV, which responded last June to call for funding for interventions to transform properties into university housing or residences.
This is a first, significant step that will be followed by calls for funding, but in the meantime Iuav has obtained approval and the necessary "seal of quality" for a proposal that brings city institutions into operational synergy for the first time, with a view to the common goal of Venice City Campus.
