I can't think of a better name for the Smarties student housing facility. A perfect residence for university students, this candy-coated piece of architecture is fun, vibrant and full of youthfulness.

Designed by Architectenbureau Marlies Rohmer Architecture, the Smarties student housing facility is located in Utrecht, Netherlands. It was built on the Utrecht University, turning the Uithof into a full-fledged campus. By addressing the shortage of housing for students, it signals a new appreciation for university-goers as well as education.

The multicolored Smarties student housing facility is comprised of 380 independent and clustered rooms as well as party rooms and other sections dedicated to a well-rounded campus lifestyle.

The Smarties student housing facility wasn't just inspired by the candy, but also by the eclectic students themselves. Stats for Candy-Coated Architecture Trending: Older & Warm
