Moving to another room / student hall
If you are not satisfied with your room and your contract lasts for more than 12 months, you can submit a move request after the first month of your lease. Contracts, which start in August and September can submit a request from the 1st of November.
First, you have to decide which student hall and which housing type you prefer. Once you have decided, please send an email to the person responsible for your current student hall:
Student Halls (Your student hall → Responsible for student accommodation)
Once your email has been received, you will get more information and a link to the online move request from the person responsible for your student hall.
After your move request has been received, you will either get an offer for a new room momentarily or you will be notified that your move request has been put on a waiting list. You can check your position on the waiting list on our website at any time. As soon as there is a room offer, you will be notified.
If you want to move into a single apartment or a flat share that isn’t occupied, you have to expect a waiting time of 1 or 2 semesters. You can deny up to 2 room offers. If you also deny the third offer, your request will be deleted from the waiting list.
You can move on the first of every month, if the move request was approved up to the 15th of the prior month. A termination of your tenancy agreement isn’t necessary.
Studentenwerk charges a fee of 10 Euros for a tenancy changeover within a student hall and a fee of 20 Euros for moving from one student hall to another. Sometimes a supplementary payment or repayment of the deposit becomes necessary.
