A note of Explanation

The administration of the Technical University of Moldova intervenes with a clarification regarding the information posted on the chisinau.fail page on facebook.com and taken over by the media, regarding the pictures of a room in the UTM dormitory no. 2.

The pictures presented were made in room 509 from the no. 2 of the UTM from Studenților street, 7/1.

This room, as well as others, which do not comply with the sanitary norms (about 20 rooms in dormitory no. 2 and about 100 rooms in total), were not included in the accommodation fund of the UTM for the year 2019/2020.

Therefore, in room no. 509 from the dormitory no. 2 no students were accommodated this year. Moreover, this room was not included in the list of rooms for student accommodation in the 2019/2020 school year, given that it does not meet the sanitary norms for a decent living.

Based on the current number of students, the Technical University of Moldova annually transfers a number established from the housing fund into the annual repairs fund, the repairs being performed during the year. Depending on the financing available, UTM performs repairs in approximately 50 rooms / sections annually.

Therefore, room no. 509 from the dormitory no. 2 of UTM from 7/1 Studenților Street, was included in the annual plan of repairs for 2019 and was not allocated to accommodation.

We inform that during the last two years UTM has invested about 4,745,000 lei in the repair of dormitories. The repair works include not only the repair of the halls, but also the places of common use, the sanitary groups and the engineering networks.

Further, UTM confirms its commitment to invest in student dormitories to provide students with decent living conditions during their studies at UTM.
