Mobility requirements have been increasing in all age groups in recent years. This development has resulted in new forms of short-term housing. Such units are expected to offer user-friendly servicing that is ready for immediate occupancy. The work in hand explores this challenges and requirements from a facility management point of view using the example of a student dormitory and an old people's home. The core question is how the required level of efficient servicing can be achieved without affecting everyday life and privacy of the inhabitants.The first section provides a general survey of short-term housing, various target groups, their needs and resulting requirements. The following historical survey illustrates the development of the study objects up to the present status. The third section lists various housing and old-age care projects and how specific target group needs are being met. In architectural terms, especially in terms of architectural design. The main focus is set on social interface problems and interfering interests of agents and parts of the organisational structure. The next chapter provides a brief outline of the general and specific legal background of the two objects in question and the two objects of the study are presented, the ownership situation and their organisation, the task profiles and functions, as well as a detailed description of the buildings including equipment. The study explores the current facility management situation in detail with a strong focus on user needs. In particular the work at hand examines relevant facility management guidelines and regulations and how they apply. The resulting recommendations are tailored to the two objects in question and then tested in regard to potential modifications.Finally the study offers a Facility Management Plan including concrete structural, organisational and operative suggestions for improvement.
