Moving in

For some impressions and photos, for example of the apartments but also of the parties, just browse through this page! If you have any questions, you can either contact the Studentenwerk or us directly, you can find contact information in the sidebar.


You should apply as early as possible, this is not a commitment! You’ve decided you want to go to the Karlshof? Cool! You can fill out and send your application using this form. From now on you will receive a monthly mail in which you should confirm that you are still interested in a place. As in almost every city there are more applicants than available beds, so it may take a while until you get a place. Then you have 10 days to pay the deposit and the first rent, after that nothing will stand in the way of your time at Karlshof!


Congratulations, welcome to the coolest dorm! You will receive an email with your moving in date and some more important information. Until then there is not much you can do. But you can allow the StuWe to forward your contact details to your new roommate, so that you can exchange information beforehand or if you already live in Darmstadt you can meet each other.
