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.

The allocation of free dorm rooms is based on the chronological order of the received applications. The same terms of admission and rent apply to all dorm rooms (see Regulations).  The calculation of rental prices and the amount of the deposit are approved and adopted by the administrative board of the Studierendenwerk. The calculation of rent is done in line with the 2nd calculation regulation. No bill will be issued for the annual operating costs. The monthly paid rental costs are based on a rental period of at least 1 semester (6 months). For shorter periods of rent (less than a full semester), higher rental costs will be charged for the same room.

Calculation Examples:

Beginning of Rent:    01.10.2011     01.10.2011
End of Rent:              31.03.2012    31.01.2012
Duration of Rent:       6 months         4 months
Price of Rent:            200.00 €         275.00 €

The deposit amounts to 300,00 € for new contracts as of 01.08.2013. According to § 551 Paragraph 3, Sentence 5 BGB, it does not and will not bear any interest. The student will receive the deposit or the unaccounted part of the deposit back 2 months after terminating the lease agreement.
