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 and according to the occupancy policy. 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.

Every two weeks following your application, you will receive a mail to which you need to reply in order to confirm your interest. Should you fail to do so, your application will appear as done in the system.
