On Friday, July 12, Politecnico di Torino and Camplus (housing provider for university students in Italy and Spain) inaugurated the new student residence dedicated to Cesare Codegone.

The new residence is financed 50% by MIUR funds and the remaining 50% by project financing from ATI SECAP s.p.a (construction) and Fondazione Ceur-Camplus (management). It is a new building located in Via Paolo Borsellino 38, in a strategic position, a few minutes’ walk from the Politecnico, the city center and Porta Susa railway station. The residence building is comprised of nine floors for a total of 132 rooms and 144 beds. Ten rooms in the residence will be reserved for new students enrolled in an engineering course, as part of an agreement between the University and Camplus regarding the “WeareHERe” program for the promotion of female enrollment in courses in the area of engineering. All rooms will be fully furnished and will include a study area and a refrigerator for the exclusive use of the student. The services offered by the facility have been designed to meet every need: laundry, common kitchens, study rooms, a recreation room with TV, a large terrace and a garden will be available to all students.

The new residence offers around 58 beds at a free market rent and more than 86 beds at controlled prices, together with an all-inclusive package that includes the use of all the facilities, air conditioning, utilities and Wi-Fi, with prices that vary according to the type of room chosen and the period of stay.
