Welcome - we are delighted that you have decided to study in Leipzig.

As a student at one of Leipzig's institutes of higher education, you can apply online via us for a room in one of the halls of residence. Simply set up an user account and follow the instructions. You will need a study permit or a certificate of enrolment for your application.

With our range of student halls of residence we aim to contribute to creating good conditions for the time you spend living in Leipzig, so that your studies here are a success. The Studentenwerk Leipzig has over 5200 rooms in 15 residential areas at its disposal. Our student halls of residence vary greatly; they vary in terms of size, location in Leipzig, and in part the level of comfort offered.

The most common type of accommodation is a flat share for two students, in their own rooms, who share a kitchen and bathroom. In addition to these there is a limited number of single apartments (one-room apartments) available as well as larger flat shares.

Living in student halls of residence offers many advantages: it is easy to meet new people, the all-inclusive rents are stable and university buildings are easily reached by way of public transport.

Rooms are furnished with a bed, desk/table, chair, wardrobe (sometimes with upper storage) and shelving. Each type of accommodation includes furnished kitchens and sanitary facilities. Unfurnished rooms may also be rented at Mainzer Straße 2a.

In addition, you almost always have access to:

In some of the halls of residence, there are also student clubs.

In addition to internet access, in each of the rooms there are connection points for a telephone and for cable/satellite television. Residents are required to pay licence/GEZ fees themselves. Residents also have to have their telephone connection enabled by a telephone company (if they wish to use it).

Our halls of residence are not hotels. Everyone is responsible for their own food and for cleaning their room, the kitchens and sanitary units. Crockery, pots and pans, pillows, quilts, bed linen, curtains and towels are not provided.

It is not possible to view the rooms before moving in, since all rooms are continuously occupied.
