On the former NDSM-wharf, an industrial area, now transformed into a new-media park with upcoming events and creative companies, these 380 living-cabins have temporarily been placed for students. The containers will stay here (at least) until 2010. Each box has its own services like a kitchen, bathroom, toilet, tv-connection and internet, measuring 24 m2. One box costs about 350 euro to rent, all inclusive. The students have a larger communal space for parties, gatherings, or, just to get together. Another shared facility is the wash-space, to do the laundry, and a container for garbage. The ferry-boat takes the students to the Central Train station. According to the Duwo, "there really is no need to take the boat to the centre," the next-door IJ-halls offer several different activities, parties and large festivals. The former ship-yard hall has a large skate-ramp with bars, restaurants, and even MTV has found its new headquarters in one of the halls next door.
