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


Living for help: Insights into a housing partnership

Housing for help - students support you in everyday life and pay less rent
Are you looking for a room, studying at a university in Karlsruhe or Pforzheim and are socially interested and committed?
Then "Wohnen für Hilfe" could be the right programme for you! Since 2008, the Paritätische Sozialdienste has been working with the Studierendenwerk in Karlsruhe to find accommodation for students. Instead of paying rent, students undertake to make everyday life easier for their accommodation providers. Only the incidental costs incurred are borne by the students.
We visited such a housing partnership at home for you and would like to give you an insight into a housing partnership at "Wohnen für Hilfe" with the following two videos: https://www.sw-ka.de/de/wohnen/wohnungssuche/wohnpartnerschaften/

Have fun watching!
