Hall of Residence

Application for a Room in a Hall of Residence

Please apply for admission as soon as possible. Availability is very limited.


Our program is trying to combine the design fields of graphic, communication, media and industrial design by offering projects and classes that require the students to sophistically apply previously acquired skills in one or more of these fields. Even though architecture, interior design, art and fashion design are at the far end of this list and we have always selected students also with these backgrounds.

Successful portfolios must prove that the applicant is able to think outside of the box. As part of this thinking we are interested in seeing a variety of projects tackling different problems and offering different solutions. We are also looking for process rather than focussing on high-end renderings as final solutions. This includes sketches, models, and other forms of exploring your ideas.

We also must make sure that all accepted students are on a somewhat comparable level. Each student is required to jump right into the projects. 

Please keep in mind that your portfolio plays the biggest role in our decision making process. It should represent who you are as a designer and how you work.




Application Procedure
