AMSTERDAM — Amsterdam plans to build 7,600 new student flats by 2010, the municipality informed ANP Friday. The number corresponds to the estimated shortage of student housing in the city.

A recent study showed that students and young working people have very different housing needs. The housing project for working young people will be presented in the upcoming months.

Approximately one third of the new student flats will be in the so called “container houses”. The rest will be more traditional flats with shared bathroom and kitchen.

Stricter regulations will also be introduced to prevent former students from occupying the housing reserved exclusively for students. Everyone who has graduated or dropped out will have to move out.
