How to apply for a room through the Accommodation Service

1. Register as an exchange student

First you need to fill in the online application form to register with the university. The point of contact for the online application form is Ms Christiane Seack from the International Student Services Team. After you have filled in the form, Ms Seack will send you more information about further administrative procedures as well as the information regarding your arrival, welcome events etc.
The online application form also provides the option to apply for a pre-sessional German language course.

2. Fill in the application form of the Accommodation Service

If you would like to apply for the rooms allocated by the Accommodation Service of the International Office, please fill in the the application form and send it back to the Accommodation Service via email or mail within the deadline. We will then try to send you a room offer. Due to the limited number of rooms in the halls of residence, we cannot offer places in the halls of residences to all incoming students but also search for offers on the private housing market.

If you have specific preferences regarding your accommodation (e.g. a room in the student halls of residence, in a flat-share or a studio), please make a note about this on your application form. We try to consider preferences. But due to the large number of students, we cannot guarantee that all wishes can be considered.

The application deadline for the summer semester 2020 is 01.12.2019.

Of course, the Accommodation Service will also support all international students with information and advice on how to find an accommodation after this date.

3. Check your email account regularly

The Accommodation Service will contact you via email. Therefore, it is important to check your email account regularly (also the spam folder, in case any email ended up there). Please reply to emails as soon as possible.

Please note that the room reservations are binding and that we can only submit one offer for renting a room to each student. In case you do not accept the offer, do not reply to our emails and/or do not send back the contract of rent within the time frame indicated, we will allocate the room to another student. In this case, you will need to search for an accommodation yourself.
