Abstract [en]

Housing shortage is sweeping over Nordic countries, where college/university students has involved in this housing crisis. More innovative housing solutions are appealed to buffer housing shortage and supply affordable housing for students. The existence of module housing and container housing in a number of Nordic municipalities has come into being a new housing term: temporary housing. At the same time, students’ housing expenditure has influence on their financial strain, and students’ housing location affects student involvement on campus. The design of temporary housing aims to cope with housing shortage. This study intends to figure out an ideal temporary housing with a great rent in order to alleviate students’ financial strain, a good location so as to enhance the level of student involvement, and a satisfactory housing type for purpose of meeting students’ housing preference. To understand students’ view of temporary housing, Cockerham’s theory of health and lifestyle is applied to develop “living condition” in student group. A self-administered questionnaire in quantitative research is conducted, and with a case study element as well. The survey groups centers on college/university students so that this study is following a down-up perspective. Finally, based on students’ feelings and opinion, an ideal temporary housing is depicted as a new product in student housing. This ideal temporary housing is discussed in relation to variables, such as an acceptable rent, good housing location and pleasant housing type.
