Important Information for Those Seeking Accommodation
We would like to assist you in your search for a suitable room. The student accommodations vary in location, type of living arrangement, size and price. We also offer barrier-free rooms and apartments for mothers/fathers with child.
For student residence places in Aalen, please contact the Jugendwerk Aalen.
There are usually rooms vacant until just before the summer semester starts. In autumn, however, it sometimes happens that all rooms are taken before the beginning of the winter semester. If that is the case, you might face a waiting time of up to several months. Longer waiting times may occur for apartments. We recommend that you apply early.
When Will I Know?
If we have a room available for you, we will inform you as soon as possible before your desired date of moving in. If you haven't heard from us about 3 weeks before this date, you can assume that no room is available for this date. However, your application will be kept on the waiting list.
When Should I Apply?
There are no particular application periods or deadlines. The sooner you apply, the better.
Vary depending on the student residence. We offer single rooms in double units (accommodation shared between 2 people), in 3-people up to 6-people units and in group homes (e.g. 18 students share a kitchen and sometimes sanitary facilities) as well as several apartments.
Depending on the student residence and living arrangements, the rooms range from 10 m² to 20 m². You always have a room to yourself. You will share a kitchen and usually also shower and toilet with one or more students, unless you live in an apartment.

A one-off service fee of €20 is charged when the contract is signed.
The bond of €300 ensures that potential damages are covered.
Radio and TV Fee
On 1st January 2013, the GEZ became the ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice. The radio and TV fee is now charged per accommodation unit rather than per device. This means that the occupants who share a unit are jointly and severally liable and must share the fee, even if only one of them receives a letter from the Beitragsservice. Information on fees, online registration, change of address or exemption: www.rundfunkbeitrag.de
Notice of Termination Periods
The only available termination dates for any rental agreements are 30th March and 29th September. The termination notice must be submitted in writing 8 weeks before the above-mentioned dates at the latest.
The maximum rental duration is 6 semesters. If 6 semesters are not enough, please contact us.
The bond is the same amount (€300) for all rental agreements. After you move out, you will receive your bond back on the condition that your room meets all end-of-lease requirements.

Furnishing: Most rooms come with basic furniture: wardrobe, bed, table, chair, mobile drawer cabinet. Depending on the student residence, you will have a sink or your own bathroom. The bed comes with a mattress. Due to hygiene, students are required to bring their own bedding including pillow, blanket etc. Tableware, cutlery and cooking utensils are not supplied.
