For the first time in the history of the Universitat de València, the university community will decide how its Campus will be refurbished. Three projects selected by a committee of experts will be exhibited in the buildings of the faculties of the university campus, which can be voted between 19 September and 19 October.
During the process of elections to the Office of the Principal, the candidacy led by the current principal, Mª Vicenta Mestre, proposed a renovation of the Tarongers Campus to make it more sustainable and adapted to the needs of development of activities and the daily life of the university community.
In this commitment to refurbish the Campus, result of the meetings held with the four faculties of the campus (Social Sciences, Law, Economics and Teacher Training) to analyse and design the needs of spaces on the campus as a whole, was the commitment of the UV government team to submit the different projects to the consideration of the people who carry out their lives and activities on the campus.
On Monday 19 September, the Principal presented the three finalist projects of the selection process at an event held at the Faculty of Teacher Training.
The university community of the Tarongers Campus will receive an email with a unique link for personal voting to express their preference for one of the three finalist proposals: Hèspera, Obrint Pas or Trencant en Verd.
Voting will take place between 19 September and 19 November and the projects can be consulted both in the lobbies of the departmental buildings of each of the university faculties and through the following links:
