Information on the rental agreement

The requirements for the conclusion of a rental agreement are a valid certificate of study and thus proof of studies at a university in Thuringia.

A deposit is required when signing the lease. The deposit amounts to € 300.00. In accordance with § 551 para. 3, sentence 5 BGB, it does not earn interest. A repayment of the deposit or unaccounted parts of the deposit are usually made two months after the termination of the lease.

The Administrative Board of the Studierendenwerk approves and decides on the calculation of the rents and the amount of the deposit. The annual operating costs are not billed.

The monthly rents due are based on a rental period of at least one semester (six months). For a shorter period of residence (less than a full semester), higher rents apply for the same room.
