General procedure of accommodation requests

There are many more applications than free places in Rostock, so please read the following information carefully!

Please apply for an accommodation in a timely manner. You can submit your application for the winter semester from the 1rst April and for the summer semester from the 1rst October. Please apply only via our online services. Please aaccept: multiple applications are not accepted. 

Eligible to apply are only present or prospective full-time students of the University of Rostock, the Rostock University of Music and Drama (hmt), the University of Applied Science Wismar. If you are not 18 years old at the beginning of your rental contract, please note this in your application under “Hinweise” (Comment/Hints).

Prove of your admittance or matriculation is not decisive for the application. You should be able to send us the certification of enrolment "Studienbescheinigung" at latest with the rental contract.

As soon as your online application is sent to us you’ll receive an email of acknowledgement. Normaly we start on 15th of july with the assignment of places. You get answer at lateste four weeks before the semester is started -wheter a cancellation or once there is a room available you’ll be sent an offer via email.

Applications are processed in order of their receipt. Deviating of this process, we can assign rooms in exceptional cases to preferred applicants who can prove a special reason. Those applicants must submit a written justification in which the special urgency is thoroughly explained. All important details must be confirmed by corresponding proof.

You can only file one application for an accommodation of the Studierendenwerk Rostock-Wismar. The number of the waiting list will be given in the order of the entries arrived.

Together with the email containing the offer for a room you’ll receive the rental contract, the general rental conditions, as well as the house rules. Please mind the deadline when sending the signed original rental contract back to us. If you are not able to submit prove of your admittance by that time please hand those in later.

If you don’t send the forms back to us in time the offer will expire and you won’t receive a new one. You loose your place on waiting list!

Please note: The rental contract is only valid when we signed it too. This will only happen once we have received your proof of matriculation "Studienbescheinigung". As soon as we send the signed contract back to you, you’ll receive all needed information about moving in.

Please inform us immediately if you are no longer in need of an accommodation. One other important thing: All rooms - also single-apartments - may only be used by one person. Subletting is not allowed.
