The San Giobbe student residential complex of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice is open and all 229 places available have been booked. Out of the places currently being used, 92 were assigned through the ESU funding scheme for the right to university education and 83 were assigned with an assisted rental fee. The remaining 46 places reserved for the right to university education scheme will be assigned according to a list which will soon be published.
Following a European competition, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice entrusted the management of the building to DoveVivo, the largest co-living company in Europe. DoveVivo manages over 1,500 buildings, 9 student residences and 8,000 beds in 15 European cities.
The largest university campus in the historic centre of Venice is mainly hosting students from outside the Veneto region or from abroad (approximately 30% are international students).
The new residential complex
This new residential complex is the completion of the San Giobbe Economics Campus. Ca’ Foscari has invested over €64 million in the campus, of which €20 million were allocated to accommodation. The complex includes seven five-story buildings, for a total of 6,600 square metres.
The ground floor includes facilities such as a café-snack bar and rehearsal studios for music and theatre, which are open to the local community, as stipulated in an agreement between Ca’ Foscari and the Municipality of Venice. The remaining floors host student rooms and services.
The building is among the most sustainable buildings in Venice. It is an A2 energy-rated building with solar panels for heating and electricity, rainwater harvesting, and energy-saving technology. For example, bedroom windows are fitted with sensors that inhibit the functioning of the heating and cooling system if the windows are open. Moreover, presence detectors and brightness sensors allow for an optimal management of the lighting system in rooms and corridors.
Materials, colours and textures (such as exposed brickwork, slightly oxidised copper roofing and curved tiles) have been selected to create harmony between the new complex and the existing campus, as well as with the Venetian context.
The architect is professor Vittorio Spigai, who collaborated with architects Massimiliano Condotta and Maurizio Brufatto, and engineers Fausto Frezza and Pierluigi Da Col. The construction work was carried out by CMB, a company from Carpi.
The staff members of Ca’ Foscari who are involved in the project are the Project Manager, architect Magnanini, and the Technical Manager, engineer Tiziano Pompele.
What the new residential complex offers
The planning of spaces merges solutions proposed by DoveVivo in collaboration with Lombardini 22, a leading architecture studio in Italy which also works internationally.
The Campus offers single and twin en-suite rooms. Each room is completely furnished and includes everything necessary for students to use their rooms to study.
The students who rent a room on campus will feel that they belong to a community thanks to the common areas which are designed to suit their needs: study rooms, living areas, the gym, the internal laundry room, the rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the lagoon and the inner courtyard with the café which is open to the public.
