Accomodation

APPLYING FOR AN APARTMENT IN ONE OF OUR STUDENT DORMITORIES

During the application process you have the option to apply for one our dormitory rooms. Please note that we only have limited contingent of dormitory places we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be allocated a room. However, in the past almost all dormitory applications have been successful. In case your application for a room should be unsuccessful, we will notify you around 2 1/2 months before the Welcome Meeting so you will still have enough time to find accommodation on the regular housing market. Please note that the allocation of apartments is random and it is not possible for us to take special preferences into account. e.g. with regards to the location of the dormitory or the type of apartment. We only offer single rooms which house one person only and are not suitable for couples. So if you decide to apply for a dormitory during your application on Mobility Online, please make sure that you are ok with both locations listed below.

Please note that that it is not possible to apply directly to the dormitory but only during the application process on the Mobility Online platform.
