Your Position:

What is meant by removal allowance and second residence property tax?

Important note!

The state capital Dresden has so far paid a relocation allowance to students who study in Dresden and have therefore moved their main residence from outside to Dresden for the first time. It is planned to discontinue the relocation allowance for students. The state capital Dresden will submit a proposal to the city council. It is very likely that the city council will decide on the abolition on 30 January 2020.

The Studentenwerk therefore does not accept applications for relocation allowances.

Please follow the publications in the media and on the websites of the state capital Dresden and the Studentenwerk.

Depending on whether you occupy your room as principal or secondary residence either of these cases might apply to you. For detailed information please click here: or visit the Dresden website:
