A space in the heart of Berlin, that offers ample space for creativity and is regularly home to events: That is our Freiraum.

Hardenbergstr. 35
10623 Berlin 

(U/S Zoologischer Garten / U Ernst-Reuter-Platz)

With a floorspace of 475 square metres, its own fully equipped stage, the Freiraum is available to Berlin students as a place for diversity and exchange.

During the semester weekly events such as plays, concerts and drawing courses take place in the Freiraum, which are available to all students. Also, this is the stage for the Mix it! talent competition. 

Provision of the Freiraum:

Basically, in order to get the Freiraum, you have to make an application in advance - see documents below:

In order to prepare the application, the following requirements must be fulfilled:

The Freiraum is primarily available for the realisation of projects with and for students of our partner universities.

Please note the requirements on the right. 

  • Applicants must be enrolled at a Berlin university for whose students the studierendenWERK BERLIN offers services. At least 80% of the project teams should consist of students enrolled at these universities (You can find a list of the universities here.)
  • The room is otherwise not open to any other private organisers, providers, etc., not even from the university environment.
  • The room cannot be rented either. The room can only be rented free of charge and only within the framework of the rules defined above. As a rule, additional costs (GEMA, technicians, etc.) are not covered by the Department of Culture & International Affairs.
  • Projects with a commercial background or with the intention of making a profit cannot be funded.
  • During the week, the free space for events is only available on Thursdays. The events must end at 22 o'clock.
  • You should contact us about 6 months before the event, as the free space is very quickly booked out.
  • Due to the "Betriebsgenehmigung" as well as for economic and personal reasons the free space will be closed at the weekend or only in exceptional cases events then will be held by the Büro Kultur & Internationales.
  • Before filling in the application form, please read within the document "Projektantrag für studentische Projekte" the Part II: "Information on funding conditions".
  • After you have submitted an application, it will be reviewed  and you will receive a reply within 3 weeks.
