C 1. How and when do I apply for a dormitory?

Along with your admission letter, you will get an application form for housing in one of the dormitories run by the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. You can also download this application form from their website. Please keep in mind, that an application does not necessarily guarantee you a dormitory apartment or room. Furthermore, the Studierendenwerk Thüringen makes its decisions on the principle of first-come, first-served. Please be aware that applications for dormitories should be submitted as soon as possible after admission to the university. Applications later than July 31st will not be considered for placement. By the same token, do not apply earlier than April 1st.

Please note: The Studentenwerk will inform you themselves once a place has been found for you. In this case, please accept their offer immediately, even if the dormitory does not meet your expectations completely. You can move after your first semester, but due to a shortage of dormitory places, a rejection of, or no reaction to their offer will leave you without a home.
