Student housing

If you submit your housing application well in advance, it is generally possible to rent a room in one of the residence halls. The residence halls are administrated by the University’s Studierendenwerk (Student Services Organisation). The International Office will assist you with the application process. Detailed information on all the residence halls as well as photos can be found online. The following residence halls are situated on or close to the university campus in Nordhäuser Straße:

  • Plauener Weg 8 (approx. 225 places)
  • Alfred-Weber-Platz 5 (approx. 90 places)
  • Alfred-Weber-Platz 2 (approx. 90 places)
  • Donaustraße 28 – 42 (approx. 250 places)
  • Saalestraße 5/6 (approx. 50 places)

Exchange students interested in residence hall housing have to apply online on the webpage of the Studierendenwerk. We advise you to apply as soon as possible since capacity is limited. Only online applications are accepted. The Studierendenwerk will send you an e-mail  confirmation concerning your application. Please forward a copy of this confirmation to the International Office so that it is informed about your application. Six weeks before you move in you will be asked if you still want to rent the room. Please do not forget to answer that e-mail. The rents are priced according to the size and quality of the room; see the Studierendenwerk webpage for current price ranges. The rent price includes service costs (heating, water, electricity). Please note that prices for short contracts (less than 6 months) may be slightly higher. A deposit of € 300 must be paid for all placements in residence halls.
