*Current information on the flat-rate energy fee
In order to cover rising electricity and heating costs, the Studierendenwerk Thüringen is introducing an energy flat rate. In concrete terms, this means that from November 2022, all guests will pay a flat rate of €2.00/night in addition to their rent.
However, the energy flat rate cannot fully cover the price development of energy.
We therefore ask our guests to behave in an energy-conscious manner - knowing that many guests/students already deal responsibly with the crisis.
The income from the energy flat rate will be used exclusively to pay for the rising energy costs.
