Duration of housing

All tenancy agreements for apartments or rooms in the halls of residence are limited in time. There are different regulations for the length of occupancy of the various types of rooms.

Tenants of single apartments and comfort apartments currently receive a tenancy agreement which is limited to six semesters. An extension to your tenancy agreement for maximum two semesters is only possible if Studentenwerk evaluate the demand for housing such that sufficient accommodation for new students can be expected at the start of the next semester.

Current regulations for tenants of single rooms (with shared sanitary facilities), double apartments, shared rooms and apartments for groups or families are as follows: if it is your first time in a hall of residence, your tenancy agreement is limited to six semesters. An extension to your tenancy agreement is possible for the regular length of your course, up to a maximum of when you receive your degree. However, this is only possible if the current demand allows Studentenwerk to ensure that there is sufficient accommodation for new students at the start of the next semester.
