The Housing Department

…of the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe administrates 22 residence halls, currently with 2.790 rooms in Karlsruhe and Pforzheim . We additionally provide a private accommodation service for Karlsruhe and Pforzheim.

The rooms in our residence halls are in great demand - especially at the beginning of the semester – and, therefore, are usually fully booked. The waiting list for a room is unfortunately long, so we strongly recommend that you apply for a room as early as possible. Applications can be submitted up to six months before the move-in date

The private accommodation service is free for landlords and tenants.

  • Landlords can place their ads commission-free at 0721 6 90 91 92.
  • Students can find the ads in Studentenhaus, Adenauerring 7, Karlsruhe, right wing, basement or on the Internet.
