Standard application procedure
Students of the University of Göttingen, students of the HAWK Hildesheim / Holzminden faculty of Göttingen, students of the Göttingen private colleges and students of the University of Kassel's consecutive Master's Programm "Sustainable International Agriculture" in cooperation with the University of Göttingen are eligible for student housing.
Apply as early as possible because the rooms are allocated according to 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 or 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.
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.
Exchange students (e.g. Erasmus-/ Exchange programme)
If you are an Erasmus+ and partnership student or a double degree (dual-enrolment) or Erasmus Mundus student, you can apply directly for a room in a student dormitory with the university's Accommodation Service. Studentenwerk offers a limited number of rooms for the students enrolled in these programmes at the University of Göttingen. For these students it is not possible to apply directly to the Studentenwerk for housing.
More information regarding the application procedure and available room types can be found here. Additionally, you can access the registration form on this page.
Exchange students cannot apply online. Please refer to the Accommodation Service of the International Office (Göttingen International) of the University of Göttingen.
