Standard application procedure

Application requirements

Students for which the Student Administration OstNiedersachsen is responsible. If there are rooms still available, students from other universities, who can give evidence for the reason of their (temporary) stay (internship, work shadowing), will be accepted as well.

Application deadline

You can submit the application as soon as possible. The application for a place in the waiting list is completely without obligation. You need not even be registered at a university in order to be put on the waiting list. Only after you have been received and accepted the offer will the rental contract become valid.
No application deadline.


You can fill in an application form for accommodation online.

Your request will be included in the preregistration list and vacant rooms will be offered to interested persons in order of registration. Please react to an offer as soon as possible. Otherwise the Studentenwerk will assume that you are not interested in the accommodation anymore.

Exchange students and international degree seeking students

The Leuphana Accommodation Service supports exchange and international degree seeking students in finding suitable accommodation and arranges furnished rooms, e.g. in the student dorms of the Studentenwerk.

Additional information

The fact that you received a place to study does not mean that you have got a place at the student dormitory: you must apply for accommodation separately.
The expected waiting timed (based on the number of reservations and expectations about those moving out of accommodation) is given in the application. The waiting times can be very long, especially at the beginning of the semester, so you should apply in time.
