The Floraliënhuis is the result of an integrated conversion in 2011 of two adjoining houses (366 and 368 Floraliënlaan) into a modern, pleasant and functional dorm with 23 full-fledged studios.
In 2014 a new student house with 17 student rooms was built in the back of the building plot (364 Floraliënlaan).
Located in the Floraliënlaan (map) in the attractive Pulhofwijk in Berchem (Antwerp) it offers a new dimension to student accommodation in Antwerp. It also was one of the first student houses in Antwerp obtaining a green certificate for meeting completely the legislative requirements regarding town planning consents, living standards and fire safety regulations.
During the major renovation and the construction of the new building, special attention was paid to safety, durability and comfort for the inhabitants.
The Floraliënhuis combines privacy and social gathering, leaving the choice to the students themselves.
23 students studios with a minimum area of 30 m², comprising a private bathroom (shower and toilet) and kitchenette, as well as 17 student rooms with a surface of about 20 m2, comprising a private bathroom (shower and toilet) offer privacy and comfort with an ideal environment for concentrated studying. The commonl areas, a covered terrace and the garden encourage the social gathering of the students.
The dedicated facilities for disabled students and wheelchair accessibility is an asset that few private residences offer. One of the studios and one of the rooms have been specially designed for wheelchair users.
The location is unique, in the pleasant Pulhofwijk, near the campuses Middelheim and Groenenborger and at biking distance from the campus Drie Eiken in Wilrijk and other campuses within the City Ring.
The sculpture park Middelheim, and the Nachtegalenpark and Park den Brandt invite you to linger and offer sports facilities to the students. In the immediate vicinity of the Floraliënhuis there are several cafes, restaurants, sports facilities and entertainment venues.
Rents vary depending on the size and location of the studios and the rooms. You will find the exact rents and conditions under the heading "Studios and rooms".
