DUWO fights for a fair home for every student, regardless of background and nationality. That is why we are continuously committed to increasing the supply of affordable student housing, but we realize that this also involves reliable services and a living experience that suits the life you lead as a student. Because DUWO is a non-profit organization, we can fully focus on this without a profit motive. We have been doing this for almost three quarters of a century and that means that we know what our students want and need. With these insights we can build, rent and manage sustainable student housing at fair prices and in which every student feels at home.

Thanks to our extensive experience in developing projects for both new buildings and renovations, we are able to design and deliver such projects more quickly and efficiently. In order to reduce the shortage of student accommodation, we are looking at long-term as well as short-term options. We principally build modern, dedicated student accommodation located near educational institutions and campuses. However, we also consider existing buildings in other, central locations in order to convert them into (temporary) student accommodation. We pay a lot of attention to the immediate surroundings of the complexes and campuses when implementing our projects.
WAGENINGEN - MARIJKEWEG
A new student complex is being built in Wageningen at Marijkeweg 20. The new building with 350 homes was purchased by DUWO. After completion, the homes will be rented and managed by DUWO's Wageningen student housing provider: Idealis. Both student housing providers also worked together during the construction preparation.
HOOFDDORP - CAMDEN TOWN/HYDE PARK
A large new DUWO complex with 563 student homes is being built in the Hyde Park district of Hoofddorp: Camden Town. Construction started in June 2023. The complex is being built by external developers, but was purchased by DUWO. Construction is taking place entirely in accordance with the DUWO program of requirements for student housing.
DELFT BALTHASAR VAN DER POLWEG
A new student complex will be built on the Balthasar van Polweg in the foreseeable future: Balthasar van der Pol no. 4. In the same street, on the southern edge of the TU campus, there are already three DUWO student complexes: two towers that were completed in 1997 and a large student flat from 2011, better known as BalPol III. With the future construction of Balthasar van der Pol 4, a fourth will be added. The building will be located on the current parking lot between BalPol III and the Korvezeestraat student complex.
