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

Excursion to Baden-Baden with city tour on June 8, 2024

Come with us on an unforgettable journey to the enchanting city of Baden-Baden, nestled at the foot of the Black Forest and famous for its breathtaking casino.


GREAT NEWS!!! We are changing again! #koeriwerk

We would like to thank our current vegan currywurst for a great season! Since December 2023, it has replaced our classic vegan sausage brilliantly.

But now it's time to return to our true legend. The delivery issues have been resolved and we are looking forward to making a final switch.

Wine hike followed by wine tasting - June 01, 2024

We take the train together to Malsch near Heidelberg to explore the picturesque "Rund um den Letzenberg" wine trail. This trail leads us for around seven kilometers through the breathtaking landscape of the northern Kraichgau region, peppered with exciting information boards about the wine-growing area. Even if the weather doesn't quite play ball, there's no need to worry, as the path is well maintained and easy to follow.


Switch and save energy - join in!

Together we are flipping the switch: in our heads and on the heating and electrical appliances in the student halls of residence. For student-friendly rents and climate protection:
