Description

Studentski Grad (Serbian Cyrillic: Студентски Град), or colloquially Studenjak (Студењак), is an urban neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Novi Beograd. Studentski Grad, as its name points out (Serbian for "Student City") is actually the campus of the University of Belgrade. It is the largest dormitory in Belgrade, originally constructed to accommodate nearly 5,000 students.

Location

Studentski Grad is located in Novi Beograd's Block 34 (and some smaller parts of Block 4), bounded by the neighborhoods of Bežanijska Kosa on the west and Fontana on the east. The area is encircled by the streets of Tošin Bunar and Narodnih heroja, Zoran Djindjić Boulevard and the Belgrade-Zagreb highway (or the Boulevard of Arsenije Čarnojević).

History

First public announcement of the construction was published on 7 January 1947 and the building began on 5 April 1949. It was projected originally for 4,500 beds. Only a year later, students already settled the Block III. Block II followed in 1952 and in 1955 Blocks I and IV were finished, completing the project.A massive and long reconstruction was conducted 1985-1997 after which Studentski Grad gained its present appearance.
