Students help with daily chores and in exchange pay lower rentYou are looking for accommodation, you are a student at a university in Karlsruhe or Pforzheim, and you are interested and involved in social initiatives?Then „Housing partnerships“ is the right thing for you! The Paritätische Sozialdienste has been offering accommodation for students in cooperation with the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe since 2008. Instead of paying rent, students help with daily chores and only pay for utilities.
WHERE DO THE STUDENTS LIVE?
WHAT ARE THE DETAILS?
We meet the prospective students as well as the housing providers – so we can bring together suitable candidates.
The general rule is: 1 sqm housing = 1 hour of help per month.
Example: A female student is renting a 16-sqm room from an elderly lady. Bathroom, kitchen and balcony are shared. The student is committed to help 16 hours per month. The rent is dropped, but the student pays the costs for utilities (electricity, gas, water, garbage collection).
There can be exceptions from this rule, but this must be discussed beforehand.
Once students and accommodation providers have got to know each other and have agreed on moving in, both parties sign a contract with each other. We are happy to support you in drafting the contract. We are also available to advise on any questions that may arise during the subsequent period.
