Consultation on Housing


For most students, the first step in their academic career is to find an apartment. Once found, they can still cause a lot of headaches. And with an unreasonable landlord, frustration quickly ensues.

In order to quickly find an apartment and not be at the mercy of your landlord, the AStA offers housing counselling. We can help you find an apartment, answer questions about tenancy law and answer questions about housing entitlement certificates and housing subsidies.

If you have any questions, you can get free advice from us during our consulting hours. You can also reach us by Mail at any time.

In order to do this, you must come to the AStA Housing Counselling in person with your documents, show your Student Identification and pay a deposit of 10€ which will be returned to you by the Mieterschutzverein at the end of your appointment.

Appointments can only be canceled and booked until 12 noon the day before.We have no influence whatsoever on the decisions of the STW regarding waiting lists etc. Please address these requests directly to the STW!
