Abstract [en]

In Stockholm, and other metropolitan areas, the lack of housing and especially student housing have been long-standing. Boverket says this is due to an strong population growth in combination with a relative low house building. The demand of higher education will keep raising, despite the fact that in a few years will we have passed the peek of youths. This while Stockholm municipality wants to set the goal; in year 2015 all newly built premises and housings should have an energy consumption per square meter that corresponds to the energy consumption of an passive house according to Åfreds (2011).The purpose of this thesis is to propose changes and improvements for the housing for students, socially, academically and environmentally to and examine how it could be performed with passive house technology for Stiftelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder. The thesis identifies wich kind of housing and wich functions students demands regarding future student housing and how much they are willing to pay for this variables. The goal of the thesis is through research and previous studies present a design proposal for a conceptually, energy efficient and flexible student housing at a selected site, Solna, in Stockholm. The design proposal should contain drawings and descriptions of the accommodation.To identify what the students demands when it comes to new student housings, two surveys have been designed and distributed to students in Stockholm. The surveys were quantitatively designed and was presented in bar charts, but analyzed and interpreted from a quantitative approach. A random sample of 60 respectively 100 persons at KTH in Stockholm were questioned. This have supplemented with SCB’s studie from 2004 to get a broader and a more in depth perception.A theoretical background was conceived with basic theory which highly affects the research and the last part in this thesis is to produce a design proposal for the future of student housings.The interpretation and reporting of the result was performed by drawing up tables in Excel and then make an interpretation of the results that are in the report's analysis section. The results were analyzed and a "basic accommodation" was developed from this.According to the author’s investigation is the typical student who have respondent between 19-25, single and living either in a student residence or in an ordinary apartment/house. The students want the student housing should be close to good public transport (92%), have a reasonable rent (97.5%) and are happy to be close to university (68%).In the building want the students to have access to a social room and study room. But these rooms must not take up too much space and affect the rent to any great extent. The rooms are still important in the home. From the social perspective wanted the student to be largely social in their living and they study mostly in groups. 67% of the students pursue their self-study at home, according to SCB's survey from 2004.The students ranked four accommodations i the survey. As the first choice they ranked the student living in "a room with a kitchenette" (45%), followed by "a room and kitchen" (29%), "corridor room" (15%) and "double room apartment" (13%).The student would be able to cook their meals in their apartment, in a fully equipped kitchen. 60% consider themselves to be in need of a desk in his apartment, but many choose to study on the sofa or dining table. They also pay for a normal sized bathroom, handicapped accessible, than compromising on the area for the function. 120 cm wide bed was wanted as much as 95% of respondents, and even sleep traditionally. Inventory and storage was also very important. Whether the apartment is furnished or not, 80% said it was unimportant / very unimportant. The student is also environmentally friendly and would consider lowering the rent by living eco-friendly.In 2004, 91% of the students in Stockholm said the maximum rent per month was 3500 Swedish crowns. That's about 4100 Swedish crowns / month for the rent with the current monetary measure and the student funds from the government. The majority were willing to pay up to 5200 Swedish crowns/month for an apartment at 24 sqm. 55% of students are willing to share their room in an apartment of 24 sqm.The energy calculation on the actual student housing, according to a rough estimate in PHPP 2007, shows a specific heat at:• Stockholm: 8 kWh / (M2A)• Kiruna: 20 kWh / (M2A)• Lund: 7 kWh / (M2A)The main conclusion is that the future of student housing in Stockholm will be located at the “right place”, the students would rather pay more for a quality accommodation than they want to compromise on the features of student housing and that it should be performed in the passive house standard.
