Dresden as the provincial capital of Saxony pays a removal allowance to all students of the Dresden institutes of higher education (except for students of the university of cooperative education - Berufsakademie) who as a result of their studies aim at relocating their principal residence to the city of Dresden.
The student has to occupy his/her main residence within a fixed time span (from January to December of the same year). In the following year - from January until the end of March - application for removal allowance (150EUR at present) can be made. Removal allowance can only be granted once for the whole period of study. In order to apply, we kindly asked you to appear in person in the Studentenwerk, department of accommodation. The application cannot be made by third parties and should also not be sent by post.
The money will be transfered by the Studentenwerk into a German bank account. Application forms will be available at the Studentenwerk, the registration office and the citizen's advice bureau at the beginning of January. The application form can also be retrieved on the internet under www.dresden.de/wegweiser
