There are a total of 512 places available in residential groups for between 2 and 8 persons. The rooms are 10-15 sq m (several short-term rental rooms 8 sq m) in size, and are furnished. Some 2-bedroom apartments are leased out, with preference given to couples and solo parents.

Depending on their size, the apartments have one or two plumbing units, and a fully equipped kitchen. All rooms have an Internet, telephone and cable TV connection. Parking bays for cars and motorbikes in the underground car park or outside can be rented out through the property manager. Bike parking bays are also available, as are coin-operated washing machines.

The property has a tearoom and a bar, which is run by the residents themselves. There is also a room for various internal activities. The student council runs a number of different groups, e.g. salsa dance classes, improv theatre, self-defence, work-out, carpentry workshops and bike workshops. A music rehearsal room with piano, a gym, and a study room are also available.


Monthly rent between € 255,- and € 341,- incl. flat additional costs (effective as of October 1st, 2019). Monthly rent for a long-term place in the tower building is € 285,- incl. flat additional costs. 

The rent includes additional costs, such as heating, water, electricity etc., as well as costs for Internet access and the cable TV connection.
