Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus (IC), a lea­der in the Euro­pean stu­dent housing mar­ket, cele­bra­ted top­ping off for THE FIZZ Lei­den, Net­her­lands tog­e­ther with the gene­ral con­trac­tor Bouw­be­dri­jf Niers­man (“Niers­man”). Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from IC and Niers­man cele­bra­ted the top­ping off tog­e­ther with the con­s­truc­tion crew on site. Upon expec­ted com­ple­ti­on at the end of 2023, the buil­ding will offer 394 inde­pen­dent stu­di­os for stu­dents. Con­s­truc­tion of the two-part buil­ding began in ear­ly 2022. It will be IC’s second house in the Net­her­lands, after the award-win­ning THE FIZZ Utrecht. IC is tar­ge­ting LEED Gold cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on for the buil­ding.

JK Veld­ink, Seni­or Deve­lo­per at Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus in the Net­her­lands, said: “We are curr­ent­ly right on sche­du­le. The fit-out of the buil­ding will com­mence at the end of Q1 2023. With this sche­du­le, we aim for moving in the first stu­dents at the end of this year or the begin­ning of next year.”

Kris­ti­an Aipas­sa, Direc­tor Deve­lo­p­ment at Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus in the Net­her­lands, added: “With THE FIZZ Lei­den we will set new stan­dards. The archi­tec­tu­ral design by Kokon Archi­tec­tuur and inte­ri­or design by TANK offers spa­cious com­mu­nal are­as, a varie­ty of dif­fe­rent stu­dio types and, abo­ve all, a focus on sus­taina­bi­li­ty: this includes a ther­mal ener­gy sys­tem, solar panels, a rain­wa­ter coll­ec­tion sys­tem and a green roof and a green faca­de. In addi­ti­on, IC focu­sed on incor­po­ra­ting natu­re inclu­si­vi­ty into the land­sca­ping. Fur­ther­mo­re, IC sup­ports the ten­ants in opti­mi­sing their ener­gy, elec­tri­ci­ty and water con­sump­ti­on by pro­vi­ding a sub­me­ter for each apart­ment. In this way, the ten­ants join IC in its sus­taina­bi­li­ty efforts.”

Rogier Het­ter­schijt, Head of Acqui­si­ti­ons at Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus in the Net­her­lands, says: “The loca­ti­on in Lei­den is per­fect for our new stu­dent resi­dence: it is well con­nec­ted to Lei­den Uni­ver­si­ty, the Lei­den Bio Sci­ence Park, the city cent­re and the train sta­ti­on. Lei­den, like the rest of the Net­her­lands, has a mas­si­ve shorta­ge of ade­qua­te housing for stu­dents. In Lei­den, the­re were just under 8,600 places in stu­dent accom­mo­da­ti­on for around 46,300 enrol­led stu­dents in the aca­de­mic year 2021–2022. We want to coun­ter­act this con­sidera­ble under­sup­p­ly and rea­li­se addi­tio­nal pro­jects in the Net­her­lands in the future. We are stay­ing on cour­se for growth and are reli­e­ving the regu­lar housing mar­ket in the pro­cess.”
