Welcome to Pireus – inviting, secure and Nordic Swan eco-labelled
At Pireus, well-being and a sense of community take centre stage, but so does the calm of a secluded setting and a sound and climate-friendly living environment. Pireus is in the Kämnärsvägen area of north-east Lund and part of a larger campus environment in which sustainability and well-being are top priorities. Pireus takes its name from the Greek port outside Athens. And, just as on the coast of Greece, it is Lund’s ’s Pireus that is the portal for the area and welcomes visitors to Kämnärsrätten.
Pireus is a living quarter made for social activities, with pleasantly designed courtyard environments, lots of trees and greenery, spaces for sport and games, a lounge, study rooms and access to a bicycle repair room. The quarter is also directly adjacent to Campuskilen, a park-like pedestrian thoroughfare with facilities such as an outdoor gym, boule court and places to grill and chill. Of course, an active life requires a good balance and therefore Pireus also focuses on your personal sphere. Here, it is easy to find calm and seclusion, both among the cosy screened-off areas in the courtyards and in your own accommodation, which is designed to provide good studying conditions and restful nights.
The area opened in 2023 and consists of five different buildings, varying from four to eight stories, with white facades, black sheet metal features and playfully positioned drainpipes. The 223 student apartments provide space for up to 300 students. There are one-room apartments for those who wish to live alone and larger apartments that are perfect for 2-3 friends who want to live together. The bedrooms in these apartments for friends have space for both a bed and a study place.
The student housing is Nordic Swan eco-labelled and promises everything from low climate impact, low energy consumption, solar cells, eco-friendly materials, sedum roofs and a sound indoor environment to good conditions for supporting students’ bicycle usage.
