Politehnica University Timisoara currently operates with 10 faculties totalling 12430 students at all cycles of education, of which 5972 students accommodated in the current spaces.

The land on which the investment will be located has an area of 11109 sqm, of which 4567 sqm will be used for the construction of accommodation spaces for students.
The proposed building will consist of 4 sections, the main bodies being longitudinally oriented NW-SE and the circulation corridor for all 3 levels, oriented East-West, bodies united by a horizontal circulation corridor, with the main access from the ground floor area of the first section using the resistance system with pillars and reinforced concrete beams with continuous beam type foundations, located on foundation flanges. The new construction will be made of reinforced concrete frames. The exterior enclosures as well as the interior partitions will be made of ceramic masonry blocks. Aluminium joinery closures with insulating glass are provided for doors and windows. The proposed coverage will be of circulating terrace type, over the 2nd floor plate of the T1-T4 sections, accessible to the public, where the necessary layers will be provided also for maintenance activities.
For both interior and exterior finishes, high quality criteria will be taken into account for the best resistance and a pleasant appearance. For the facade, decorative plasters in pastel colours of different shades will be used. Thermal insulation of the exterior walls will be made with a layer of mineral lacquer and polystyrene thermal insulation extruded on the entire outer contour of the building along the entire height of the basement, according to the regulations in force. Aluminium joinery is suggested, with controlled natural air circulation slots between the outside and the occupied spaces (in order to avoid the production of condensation around the windows and other areas with low resistance), with treated low-e insulating glass on the outside.
Finishing elements include laminate flooring, heavy-duty carpeting, tiles and floor tiles, washable paints.
Students will be accommodated in rooms for two, equipped with bathroom, furniture and balcony on the entire width of the room, for a total of 256 people and will include 123 accommodation units with normal regime and 5 accommodation units for people with disabilities.
