More information on the Studentenhaus TUSCULUM

Studentenwerk Dresden runs TUSCULUM as a Studentenhaus. It is a place where students and artistic collectives can be creative, use rehearsal spaces and hold their own events.

Thursdays and Saturdays, TUSCULM can be leased by non-students for various purposes (private and public events, whether birthdays, weddings, concerts, dance events, film screenings, balls, conferences, workshops and much more).For events, Studentenwerk provides the space with tables and a kitchen only.

The leaser must independently organize catering, musicians, DJs or other necessary considerations for an event. The leaser must determine whether TUSCULUM is an appropriate venue and must obtain all relevant permits (e.g. Health certificate for food sales, liquor license) and/or pay third-party fees (e.g. GEMA).

The lease fee contains a fixed fee for final cleaning by Studentenwerk. Only student events may clean the space on their own; in such cases, the cleaning fee is waived.

Final cleaning by Studentenwerk includes:
Re-sweeping and mopping of all used spaces and halls, kitchen, including toilets and outdoor stairs, cleaning sinks, toilets and urinals, removal of minor contamination due to the event.

Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information, especially as pertains to your obligations as the user.

Additional services such as technical equipment and decorations may be also booked. All lease requests must be made via our online event calendar and are possible at maximum six months in advance.
