Common rooms and student clubs

At the beginning of the semester, a particularly large number of people from different countries meet in the student halls of residence. It is to be expected that some students will have to go into quarantine after their arrival. We want to do everything possible to prevent the spreading of the corona virus in our halls of residence. We therfore kindly ask you to follow the hygiene rules and ask for your understanding for special restrictions.

The Studentenwerk Leipzig offers common rooms in all student hall of residence as a cost free service. Unfortunately, these rooms have had to remain closed in the past few months due to the pandemic.

Common kitchens or clubrooms are not yet allowed to open. However, we have developed hygiene concepts for the sports and music rooms, and stocked up on hygiene products. The technical equipment has had a check-up, and we are preparing for the reopening. Our dormitory spokespersons will inform you as soon as the rooms are available for use again. You can also find more information on the websites of the student clubs.
