Summer University 2018:

Detailed information regarding student apartments for the Summer Sessions will follow by the end of March 2018. Online registration for the summer program is already open.

Of course, you can already register for our HUWISU summer course/s. Should you be accepted into the program we will send you all necessary payment information. Once we have received your payment in full you will automatically be notified about housing options as soon as they become available. Students who are accepted into the program and who have paid the course fees will be given preferential treatment for housing options.

A deposit of 50 Euro per person has to be paid in cash upon arrival. You will receive your deposit in cash only in the event of a flawless inspection of your room during the regular check-out times. In case of early departure we kindly ask you to inform us about your bank details within four weeks after the end of your course. The deposit will be transferred to your account given that everything is in order after the room inspection.

Equipment of the Apartments

The apartments in Adalbertstrasse are completely furnished with two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Depending on the chosen accommodation option two to three participants share an apartment. Kitchen, bathroom and living area will be shared with the other housemates. As a rule people of the same sex share an apartment.
