The Accommodation Service of Hochschule Fulda helps you to find rooms for rent at special terms and conditions - in publicly owned halls of residence or private apartments (An overview . The rooms are fully furnished and equipped with bed linen, towels, cooking utensils and cutlery, so you do not need to bring anything like that with you when you move in.

- 1 September (winter semester)
- 1 March (summer semester)

The accommodation is allocated in the order in which applications are received. This means that unfortunately, you might not be allocated the accommodation you prefer. Please note that you must move into the accommodation the International Office allocates to you.

Additional information

As soon as suitable accommodation becomes free, you will be informed via mail. The rooms will be allocated in the order applications are received. It is advisable, particularly in the winter semester, to apply as early as possible.
Currently the demand for places in the halls is considerably higher than the number of free places. A waiting list is therefore being operated.
