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.
What am I required to have for my application?
Notice of admission or an enrolment 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?
Since 1 July 2011, applying has been possible through the student residence website only. Please get informed about the residential complexes and living models on these websites. All compulsory fields must be completed in the application form. Please provide your notice of admission, your enrolment certificate or the “Declaration of acceptance a place at university”, a valid receipt from payment of your semester contributions and your ID card or passport. These documents are then uploaded in scanned form. The scanned documents must not exceed 500KB per document.
How do I apply for an flat with my family?
Again, please use the student residence website. In the online student residence 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.
How do I apply for an flat with a friend/with friends?
Initially, only one member of the future shared residence applies via the student residence website. 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?
If you do not have a rental contract, you will receive an email asking if you are still interested in a place of residence. You will get this 90 days after receipt of your application. If you answer the question with “yes”, you remain on the waiting list (for a maximum two years) and will receive the next mail 90 days later. If you do not reply within 7 days, your application will expire.
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 eligibiliy.
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. Evidence of a valid semester certificate can be provided online via our residence-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 Fraunhoferstraße student residence is specifically designed to meet the needs of students with children.
Are there special childcare facilities for students with children?
In compliance with the contract type, the minimum period of residence is three months.
Are there short-term rentals (days/weeks)?
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.
