ROOF WANTED: Do you have rooms available for students?

An initiative of the city of Karlsruhe and the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe.

We are looking for living space for students! In order to draw attention to this important topic, a KVV tram with the print of the ROOF WANTED! campaign will run across Karlsruhe in the next few months. With the “ROOF WANTED!” train, we reach around 167 million KVV passengers every year – from all age, professional and interest groups and of course also those whom the train passes by.
You can find out exactly what this can look like and what options are available for potential landlords and students here: www.dachgesucht.de
