Also, in order to improve the synergy between the education and housing sectors, in 2005 DUWO established the Student Housing Advisory Council.

The Advisory Council advises DUWO regarding the current state of affairs on a biannual basis.
How can DUWO help you
DUWO is committed to helping students in all aspects of finding the accommodation they require and desire. DUWO’s primary function is to provide students with accommodation. However, student life consists of far more than just living and DUWO is dedicated to developing a number of supplementary products that can make the student life even more enjoyable.
DUWO was one of the first corporations to realise an internet connection for its student residents and to launch a website. Nowadays, most large student complexes have their own website and residents have access to a package that provides internet, TV and telephone connections. Other products offered by DUWO include lending out tools, energy-saving measures and the sale of bikes. On large campuses, DUWO also makes space available for student cafés or pubs or for use by student clubs.
