Find a student residence hall
Information, addresses and application details on a large selection of student residence halls in Germany
Carl-Ludwig-Haus • Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 1 • 35039 Marburg
"Carl-Ludwig-Haus" is part of the Student Village and was built in 1964. An Olympic Village is a temporary home for participants in the Olympic Games. The Student Village is situated at the foot of the mountain Kornberg, between the quarters Ortenberg and Waldtal. It offers students more than just accommodation: there are seven student residences in which students can study, live, have fun and communicate in many languages. Both new and more advanced students feel comfortable there. Students from all over Germany meet fellow students from different continents.
The Houses in the Students Village with classical single rooms offer fully furnished rooms, including a washing basin, communal showers, bathrooms, and a communal kitchen. The tutors rooms were built for singles, yet there is space for two students. The advantage of these rooms is that students have to share their cooking space with one person only, and they have their own bathroom, though they must make use of communal toilets. The disadvantage is that one of the rooms is a walk-through room.
In May 2014, a new meeting centre, the Max Kade Centre, was opened in the Student Village. This new building provides a new space for an exchange between young people from different nations. Moreover, a four-storey residential building with 49 accommodations was built next to the actual meeting centre in which students can meet, have parties and make music. The Max Kade Foundation, which promotes international communication particularly between young people, supports the realisation of this project.

Standard application procedure
Only students of the Philipps Universität Marburg are illegible to live in a student residence. You have to prove your status as a student on moving in.
You can apply any time. You must, however, be able to prove your status as an enrolled student at the Philipps Universität Marburg on moving in. Exception: those applying for a "Service package for foreign students" must adhere to special deadlines. The application for this package must be handed in by 31st July for the winter semester and by 31st January for the summer semester.
Please apply by filling in and submitting ("speichern") the online application form. You can choose between a secure and non-secure connection. The first is safer, but is sometimes prevented by settings on your computer.
Printing out the form and sending it by post only makes sense if you want to include a copy of your disabled person pass or medical certificate. But even in this case, you can apply online and send the attachments by fax, as scans or by post.
After the successful transmission of your application form, you will be put on the waiting list and will receive, depending on the availability of rooms and your position on the waiting list, an offer via email about 2-3 weeks before your desired start of the contract. As far as you agree to the contractual conditions and the offered room, you have to transmit the signed rental agreement and other requirements (e.g. copy of passport, student card) as a scan via email to the Studentenwerk.
It is important that you send the rental agreement in duplicate by post or hand it in personally at the administration of student housing in room 319 at the Studentenwerk Marburg, Erlenring 5. When all documents have been received on time, the rental agreement will be finalized with the signature of the Studentenwerk.
Next to the application and registration information for Erasmus students you'll find a registration form for reserving a student room in one of Studentenwerk Marburg's student halls. For further information on the application procedure click here.
Exchange students (partner university or cooperation country)
The International Office can guarantee a single room in a hall of residence for the duration of your stay.
