Application deadline

You can submit the application as soon as possible. The application for a place in the waiting list is completely without obligation. You need not even be registered at a university in order to be put on the waiting list. Only after you have been received and accepted the offer will the rental contract become valid.
No application deadline.

Additional information

The fact that you received a place to study does not mean that you have got a place at the student dormitory: you must apply for accommodation separately.
The expected waiting timed (based on the number of reservations and expectations about those moving out of accommodation) is given in the application. The waiting times can be very long, especially at the beginning of the semester, so you should apply in time.
