Looking for a place to stay?

We offer different types of accommodation


Do you want to move into one of our residential halls?

Moving houses

You already live in one of our residential halls, but would like to move to a different building complex of the Studentenwerk?

  1. You can and should apply as soon as possible if you intend to study in Potsdam, Brandenburg an der Havel or Wildau - even if you have not been admitted yet! This improves your chances.
  2. Please read emails and letters sent by us carefully. This helps to avoid misunderstandings.
  3. We ask for your understanding that the employees cannot always answer questions or be reached by telephone immediately due to the huge demand for accommodation in the residential halls. Please use our information provided under "Questions & Answers (FAQ)" beforehand.


  • Your application is only valid for the specified/requested semester! In case you are still interested in an accommodation, you need to submit a new online application every semester.
  • If your offer has not been accepted or there were other reasons that made it impossible to rent an accommodation during the originally desired semester, this application will be cancelled.
  • Please find more tips and information under "Questions & Answers (FAQ)".

Find out about our provisions governing the assignment and the procurement directives. Then, please complete the online application form.

The information you provided will be audited with regard to completeness and eligibility for student housing. Only then will you receive a confirmation email including your candidate number (please use this number in every correspondence).

As soon as you have the certificate of admission and your current enrolment certificate, send them to us via email. Please use the reply feature of the confirmation email (see Check 2). A different proof can only be provided in cases of studies with no admission restrictions. You can then send us the proof of payment of tuition fees. After this, you will receive an offer from us - but only if there is a free accommodation at this moment and your candidate number is next.

You have received an offer from us via email. It is essential that you inform us in writing via e-mail, whether you accept this offer. Please mind the fixed date for your reply, or the offer will expire. Please use your tenants’ number for further correspondence, or else we cannot associate it with you. If you have accepted our offer, please continue with Check 5.

In our offer you will find a date, by which you personally have to have signed the rental agreement during the office hours at the headquarters of the Studentenwerk Potsdam (Babelsberger Straße 2, 14473 Potsdam - Potsdam Main Station). Please note that the offer of the Studentenwerk Potsdam is no longer binding, if you missed this appointment. It is however possible to arrange an individual appointment with the person responsible.

A reservation fee of 300 Euro is due at the time the agreement is signed, which will be re-booked as the deposit. You can transfer the deposit to the following bank account:
