Collège Doctoral Européen

Universités de Strasbourg

The Collège Doctoral Européen creates new facilities to support European doctoral students studying at Strasbourg's three universities.

Set on one of Strasbourg's main boulevards, the site sits between public housing blocks and large twentieth century university buildings overlooking the city's botanic garden.

The dramatic building provides new student accommodation in 105 studio rooms as well as social, teaching and administrative spaces. In addition, the brief called for a striking building with an inviting interior that contains generous common rooms, a library and an interior garden.

Nicholas Hare Architects have built a unique structure that both connects to its surroundings and provides a striking identity for the college of European doctoral students.
