Residence hall tutors

The dorm tutors are a team of international and German students who have been living in Berlin for a long time and pass on the experiences they have gained to the residents of the dorms.

Welcome to Berlin! We are the dormitory tutors studierendenWERKs BERLIN. Our job is to help students who are new to Berlin or Germany with everything that concerns student life, the bureaucracy in Germany and everyday life in the dormitory. We will try to solve your problems with you and are happy to help you if you have any questions. 

Here is a brief overview of the things we can help you with:

  • General questions about living in a dormitory
  • General questions about the STW Berlin offers
  • Support when arriving at the dormitory
  • Register/deregister apartment 
  • open a bank account
  • Register for broadcasting fees


We also organize various events, parties and shared meals for you so that you can get to know new people. We do our best to show you what Berlin has to offer - and that's a lot! :)

How do you reach us? You have many ways to contact us: in a personal consultation, via email, telephone or via Facebook message.

Each residence hall also has a group on Facebook that you can join as soon as you move in. There you can network with other students, ask questions or buy furniture.

Check out ours too Blog at! There we report on things from the dormitory that move us and on topics that may be important to you!

Attention: Unfortunately, we cannot do anything to advance the application process for a place in a dormitory. We are also not responsible for allocating or changing rooms. For information in this regard, please contact the InfoCenter Living.

Tutoring program in the dormitories

Many dormitories in Berlin have a tutor. For this video, we invited tutor Boris to tell us what his responsibilities are, how he can help students living in his dorm and how his work has been affected by recent events.
