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.

We are still not allowed to open baking kitchens or club rooms. We have developed hygiene concepts for the sports and music facilities, but unfortunately not all rooms can be used at the moment. The spokespersons of the halls of residence will inform you which rooms are available for you to use again.

Information about openings and events of the student clubs are available on the websites of the student clubs.

Our tutors can be contacted by tutoren {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de (e-mail), Facebook, Instagram and by phone during their office hours. Personal consultation hours with our tutors will not take place until further notice, but there are online consultations via zoom. The tableware exchange is open by previous appointment.
