Applying for a room

Application process for the winter semester:  starts on April 1 of the same year in which you begin your studies.
Application process for the summer semester: the process begins on October 1 of the previous year.


Information about the application procedure:



Please fill in the online-application completely and follow the instructions. Further information about our dorms can be found on our webpage (see Living.)

A certificate of enrolment is not yet required for the application. A submission is only mandatory when the rental contract is signed.




After sending the application form you will immediately receive a confirmation by e-mail.

To legitimize the application, you must confirm the application by clicking on the link provided in the e-mail. Only with this confirmation your application will be registered at Stw. After successful registration of the application you will receive another e-mail with information on the further application procedure.




Before the allocation of rooms starts, you will be asked up to three times by e-mail whether you are still interested in a place to live. With a link in an e-mail you must confirm your application within the given deadline. If you do not respond to this request, your application will be deleted from the list of applicants without substitution.





The allocation of the rooms will start at the earliest six weeks before the beginning of the semester according to the chronological order of the applications received. The same conditions of admission and rental conditions apply to all our rooms (see Regulations).

In case a room is available for you, you will receive an offer by e-mail (please also check your spam folder!). If you do not pay attention to the acceptance deadline, the offer expires and your application is cancelled!




Should you not be able to receive an offer on the desired move-in date due to a lack of available rooms, your application will automatically become invalid.

If you are still interested in renting a room, a new online application is required. Please note the corresponding application start date!
