Additional information
The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe has for decades operated student self governance in its student halls. Tenants elect speakers for the student halls, members of the economic commission and tutors. These representatives work voluntary for the student halls and residents and are responsible for leisure activities, events and for 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.
