Applying as a student
Would you like to live in one of our dormitories? Then make use of our online application. Applying for a dormitory place is non-binding and can be sent without a matriculation certificate or admission notice.
Applications are processed after receipt and available rooms. This is exclusively done via the online application procedure. Please note that an application does not constitute a legal claim to the conclusion of a rental agreement.
If no room or apartment is currently available, you will be asked via e-mail whether you wish to be on the waiting list. If yes, you must follow the link in that mail for activation. After this step, you will be added to the waiting list.
Tip: Experience has shown that the chances of getting a place before the start of the semester are better. If this option is suitable for you, for example to get to know your new university town, you can apply for the move-in date 1st of August. It is generally possible to apply for a place in a dormitory without being admitted by the university yet.
