Grevener Straße 31

On 15 November 1972 students occupied Grevener Straße 31, a building that had been standing vacant for a year. One reason for this measure was the catastrophic housing situation in Münster at the time. A total of 25% of first-year students were homeless at the end of October 1972, 2000 students had no accommodation, and some were sleeping in tents. On 18 November 1972, the student union signed a contract with the Münster municipal authorities authorising the further use of Grevener Straße 31 by the squatters.
