C 1. How and when do I apply for a dormitory?
Along with your admission to study at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, you will get an application form for housing in one of the dormitories run by the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. You may also download this application form from their website. Please keep in mind, that an application does not necessarily guarantee that a dormitory apartment or room will be granted. Furthermore, the Studierendenwerk Thüringen decides by the principle of first comes, first served. Please be aware that applications for dormitories should be provided as fast as possible after admission to the university and applications later than July, 31 will not be considered for placement. Do not apply earlier than April 1st.
Please note: After the Studentenwerk has found you a place, you will be informed by them. In this case, please accept their offer immediately, even the dormitory does not meet your expectations completely. You may move after your first semester, but due to shortage of dormitory places, a rejecting of their offer or not reacting on it will leave you without home.
