You can apply any time and will be registered on the waiting list.
Waiting times are longest at the beginning of a semester. It usually takes three to six months to be admitted if you apply for a place anywhere within the Studentenwerk residences. However, if you limit your choice, e.g. by restricting it to only one specific apartment, you may have to wait several years.
Single parents and disabled students are given priority in the residential halls.
Applications for accommodation in a Studentenwerk residence must be submitted online.
The application must be submitted in digital form and the following documents must be added:
-a curriculum vitae and
-two recent passport pictures.
Incomplete applications cannot be processed.
The receipt of the application will not be confirmed in writing. No written interim statements will be given. Entering a current email address is absolutely mandatory. After the registration, the continuance of the application will be updated every month. The applicant alone is responsible for the completeness of the application. In the case of an incomplete application, the Studentenwerk will not make a rental offer.
Exchange or ERASMUS students, scholarship holders
If rooms are available within the contingency for exchange students, you will receive an application form together with a link for online applications. Guest students apply for places in Studentenwerk accommodation at the same time as applying for the period as a visiting student.
Please do not fill out the application form on the website of the Studentenwerk. The additional application does not increase your chances of receiving a room.
Deadline for application is 15 June (winter term) or 15 December (summer term).
The "Application for a place in a student hall of residence" is a binding application. If you have sent in a signed application but no longer require a room, you are obliged to immediately notify Ms Freier of the International Office (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
In July/January you will be notified if your application was successful.
Should you receive a “conditional confirmation” for a room in a student residence, you will be asked to transfer the deposit (two monthly rents) plus the first month’s rent to the account of Student Services (Studentenwerk Frankfurt) within a certain deadline. If the deposit does not arrive on the account of Student Services before the deadline ends, you will lose your reservation for a room in the student residence.
The rooms will be allocated according to availability and a specific room can not be chosen. You will receive the address of your accommodation around a week before the beginning of your rental (end of August/February).
Unfortunately there are more applications than places. If the Studentenwerk is unable to offer you accommodation you will receive an e-mail from the International Office in February/August. Under these circumstances you will have to look elsewhere for accommodation.
A limited number of rooms can be provided to student interns from other universities/institutes. These rooms are available only during semester breaks or due to other organisational reasons. Special fees apply.
