Apply as early as possible because the rooms are allocated in accordance with the waiting list. The earlier your application is received by the Studentenwerk, the greater the likelihood of you getting a room. With your application you are under no obligation, i.e. you can withdraw your application at any time, be put back on the waiting list, or move to a different type of accommodation. After moving in please hand in your Certificate of Enrolment i.e. you can apply without a Letter of Admission from the university and a Certificate of Enrolment.
You can apply online. You then receive a confirmation link per e-mail which you must click on. Only then the Studentenwerk can put you onto the waiting list. Only one application can be sent. Double applications will not be considered and will be deleted. Please make sure that the photo in the e-mail attachment is not bigger than 2 MB.
After the waiting time has expired you receive an offer of a room. After signing and sending back the "Declaration of Acceptance" the rental agreement is legally valid. You do not receive any further acknowledgement of receipt. The tenancy agreement will be signed in the hostel administration office at the relevant hostel on collection of the keys.
