Next to Kiruna’s new town centre, Svenska Studenthus are planning to construct 70 student residences, over three buildings.The building will be completed in the autumn of 2016; the new buildings will therefore be amongst the first in ‘new’ Kiruna. 

The buildings will be constructed based on the company’s new production concept for student housing, Student21an. The student housing will primarily be offered to students and researchers at the Space Campus and also to weekly commuting students at the Rymdgymnasium [Space High School]. Secondly, the student accommodation will be offered to the large group of contractors on a weekly commute to and from Kiruna’s mining operations. This dual use is possible thanks to the accommodation’s flexible functionality. Construction is estimated to begin during the second quarter of 2015, with occupation estimated to be gradual during the third quarter of 2016 as each stage is completed.
