In a spectacular location along the banks of Viskan, in the center of Borås, you will find Northern Europe’s textile meeting place: Textile Fashion Center. Just a short stroll away from our student residence Simonsland.
We contribute and strengthen the area and University of Borås with 160 student apartments. They were completed for students in August 2013. The apartments are spread over three buildings, one of which is built directly across Viskan. In what we call House 1, the smaller apartments are up to 24 m², and in house 2 and house 3 they are larger up to 48 m².
House 1 = Viskastrandsgatan 4
House 2 = Skaraborgsvägen 15
House 3 = Skaraborgsvägen 13
In house 1 there are laundry rooms on the 1st, 3rd and 5th floor, which are equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer and drying cabinet. In house 2 and in house 3 there are washer and dryer in the bathroom of each apartment. It is possible to rent an extra storage room (18 pieces) in house 1 on floors 2, 4 and 6. In house 2 and in house 3 there is a wardrobe in each apartment. All apartments have access to SUNET and fiber for telephony and broadband. Some of the apartments on the ground floor in house 1 have a patio that is both close to the barbecue area and is overlooking Viskan. The lower level in house 2 have balconies over Viskan. Other apartments have French balconies. There is a limited number of parking spaces for rent.
The entire student quarters of Simonsland is built as a low energy house with an energy performance of about 50 KwH per m² and year. Here we have individual measurement of hot and cold water, which means you only pay for the water you consume.
There is a lot going on in Borås
Borås is known nationally as well as internationally as Textile City. Not least through Textilhögskolan, Textilmuseet and all the well-known clothing brands that originate in the city. Here, among other things, there is also trade, logistics and a university. If you like culture, the city’s street art exhibition is recommended, where house façades serve as powerful painting cloths. You can also visit the museums of the city, such as Borås Art Museum and Abecita Art Museum. Sport is also culture, you will understand after seeing IF Elfsborg at Borås Arena.
