Standard application procedure

Application requirements

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.

Application deadline

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.
