Finding a place to live can be very difficult for students – particularly at the beginning of each new semester! – which is why we recommend getting an early start.
For students of the state universities in the region, Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe offers dormitory rooms in Karlsruhe and nearby Pforzheim. Unfortunately, however, not everyone who applies can be assigned a room due to the high level of demand.
Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe also provides a free service students can use to find rooms available for rent from private individuals. You can either register for the online system or simply look through the offers posted in the passage to the cafeteria of the Studentenhaus (on Adenauerring, in the basement of the right building wing). The Studentenhaus is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday. New offers are posted every day at 11:00 a.m. In addition, Studierendenwerk provides related advice on the page "Tips for Apartment-Hunters".
