Construction of the first hall of residence run by Studentenwerk in Ingolstadt was completed in spring 2002. Location: the building is located in the historic town centre directly next to the city wall, it barely takes 5 minutes to reach the Catholic University on foot. It consists of the new, modern residential building and an old city wall tower with common rooms for the inhabitants on two floors.
The straightforward students’ residence offers 27 single apartments of the "maisonette" variety, each with their own entrance facing the historic city wall. The top floor has 9 "sun deck" type single apartments, accessible via an arcade and an open staircase.
All 36 single apartments have a bathroom with shower and toilet and are sensibly furnished: extra-long bed, roomy cupboard, desktop plus chair and kitchenette. Bedclothes and soft furnishings are not available.
The single apartments of the “maisonette" variety - about 17 m² in size – each comprises an entrance hall, a small kitchen and a toilet/shower room on the ground floor as well as a small study/bedroom upstairs, reached via a small staircase. The larger “sun deck” type accommodation units are located on the top floor of the building and are reached via a gallery.
Every apartment is pre-equipped with wall jacks for TVs and telephones. The building has a local data network, managed and financed by the residents themselves. The building’s hot water supply is supported by an economic and environmentally friendly solar installation on the roof. Heating is powered by natural gas.
Broadband Internet access is available for every accommodation unit
In addition to the common rooms in the historic tower of the city wall for studying, reading and socializing, there are also a bicycle storage room and a laundry room (washing machines and tumble driers can be used for a small fee) in the basement. The caretaker’s office is also located in the basement.
Unfortunately, the residents have no dedicated parking space at their disposal.
