Please fill in the online application form.

Additional information

The rooms in the residence halls are in great demand - especially at the beginning of the semester - and, therefore, are usually fully booked. The waiting list for a room is, unfortunately, very long, so it is strongly recommended that you apply for a room as early as possible. Applications can be submitted up to six months before the desired move-in date.
