FAQ

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions towards Housing

Can I sublet my room or apartment? 

Yes, in the case of a stay abroad or an internship. You will need the permission of your local halls of residence administration. Find the subtenant who suits you. Please note that the subtenant has to be eligible for studierendenWERK’s housing. A subtenancy agreement is concluded between the tenant and the subtenant, but the rent remains the same; you may demand a deposit from the subtenant. In any case, you remain the main tenant with all rights and obligations. Subletting is valid for a maximum of one semester.

Where can I get advice?

At the InfoCenter study@home at Hardenbergstraße 34, 10623 Berlin, you will get all information about student housing in Berlin.

What am I required to have for my application?

Notice of admission or an enrollment certificate from a Berlin university and the proof of payment of semester contributions.

How do I apply properly, from both inside and outside of Germany?

You can apply online at any time via the online housing portal. Select 3 desired residence halls beforehand. You can decide depending on the distance to the university, the type of accommodation or the price you would like to pay. Then, simply fill out the application form with your personal data. Please have your admission or enrollment certificate, the valid receipt for the semester fee and your identity card or passport ready. Please scan these documents and upload them. The scanned documents must not exceed 500KB per document.

How do I apply for a flat with my family?

Again, please use the online portal. In the online application, it is imperative to enter information about your civil status, the name of your spouse and, if necessary, the number children you have. With this information, we can offer you a suitable living space. Please note that we can only offer you a place in a hall of residence if both partners are entitled to live in our residence halls and study in Berlin. Due to the small number of family apartments, the waiting period is extended to more than three semesters.

How do I apply for a flat with a friend/with friends?

Initially, only one member of the future shared residence applies via the online portal. The number of additional co-applicants must be indicated on the application form. An “application cover letter” will then be sent by email. This is where the full procedure will be explained in detail. Note: all co-applicants must have residency entitlement according to the guidelines for rental of student housing.

When should I apply?

As soon as the notice of admission or enrolment certificate is available and the semester fees have been paid.

Under which conditions does an application expire?

As long as you do not have a rental contract, you will receive an email asking if you are still interested in a place of residence every 90 days. If you answer the question with “yes”, please click the link and remain on the waiting list. If you do not reply within 7 days, your application will expire.

Who has a residence entitlement?

Only students of state universities of the State of Berlin as well as students of state-recognised private universities in the State of Berlin who pay contributions to the studierendenWERK BERLIN, has residence eligibility.

Tenants are obliged to prove the continuation of their residence eligibility – without being asked to do so – by 15 April and 15 October of each year. They must do this by submitting a semester certificate valid for the current course of studies.
The proof can be provided online via our housing portal.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

Yes. This amounts to 1.5 times the monthly rent.

 

Are there rooms or apartments for students with children?

Yes, in some residential complexes, places are available for students with children. The student hall of residence Fraunhoferstraße is specifically designed to meet the needs of students with children.

Are there special childcare facilities for students with children?

Yes, studierendenWERK BERLIN has several day care centers close to the universities.

How long am I bound to the rental agreement?

In compliance with the contract type, the minimum period of residence is three months.

Are there short-term rentals (days/weeks)?

No.

 

What regulations apply regarding the Rundfunkbeitrag (called GEZ up until 2013) for students in the student residencies?

The Rundfunkbeitrag – contributions to German broadcast media – must be paid by the resident, i.e. every adult who actually lives there. Because delimitation problems are “pre-programmed”, all tenants who have a valid rental contract and are registered at the residence are counted as being occupants of the residency. More information can be found here.
