Dorm life can be a ton of fun. It can be the perfect place to make new friends. While living in a dorm, one encounters plenty of new people and has the opportunity to pick up new skills. For instance, learning a new language or learning to enjoy and participate in a new culture.
If you need assistance or help with school, creating a study group is easy. Or if you just want to hang out and chill, dorm life makes it easy. In some ways, dorm life feels like living together with a large family. One will develop respect for each and every unique dorm-mate.
Every day, you can apply for a room. We don´t have any set application deadlines. We advise you to apply for a room at least three months in advance if you plan to move in for the next winter semester.

We are legally bound to restrict the tenancy contract. The longest period of tenancy is 4 years. Of course, you can move out earlier if you follow up on the minimum stay and the period of notice.
- the minimum stay of 11 months will be reached on the 28th of February, 2023
- the 2 months restriction will end on the 31st of December, 2022.
Your payment is due on the 5th of each month. If you agreed to the SEPA credit transfer, then we would collect the rent every 12th of each month.
You will find it in the enclosure of your tenancy agreement. As soon as the contract is signed by us you can register at the citizen center.
Please wait until you moved into your room. Sometimes your house or room number can change at short notice.
