Dear students,

Please don’t ask about the status of your application during our office hours; we will contact you if we can offer you a room.
Thank you for your understanding.

Your Housing Department

The Housing Department

…of the Studentenwerk Karlsruhe administrates in Karlsruhe and Pforzheim 22 residence halls with currently 2.790 rooms. We additionally provide for Karlsruhe and Pforzheim a private accommodation service.

The rooms in our residence halls are in great demand - especially at the beginning of the semester – and, therefore, are usually fully booked. So the waiting list for a room is unfortunately long. We strongly recommend that you apply for a room as early as possible. Applications can be submitted up to six months before the move-in date.

The private accommodation service is free for landlords and tenants.

  • landlords can place their ads commission-free under 0721 6 90 91 92.
  • students can find the ads in the Studentenhaus, Adenauerring 7, Karlsruhe, right wing, basement or here on the webpage.
