Application for Student Housing

The following applies to international masters students ONLY !

In Tübingen, rooms for students are hard to get, particularly in September/October right before the winter term starts. Because of this competitive situation, the Graduate Training Centre has been allocated a quota of rooms for their international master students for whom it is difficult to organize a room from abroad in time.

The single rooms we hold available for our international masters students are newly renovated, fully furnished, with Internet & TV connections and with a private bathroom. A shared kitchen is located on each floor; washing machines and dryers are available in the basement of each building.

The Graduate Training Centre will start with booking rooms right after conclusion of the selection procedure and after receipt of the notification that you accept the place on the course. Thereafter, you have to send us a ‘Room Application Form’ and the Graduate School will take care of the rest. At some point of time, after we received the lease contract for your room from the Studentenwerk* Tübingen, we will ask you to transfer the required deposit for your room (400 €). Once the deposit has arrived, we will pick up your room keys in advance, which means that you can move in whenever you arrive in Tübingen.

  • Proceed here with the Online Application for a room at the Studentenwerk Tübingen residences.

*Studentenwerk (student services organization): organization providing social and cultural support services to students and, furthermore, the Studentenwerk is in charge of the dormitories and lets rooms.


For doctoral students, the conditions for student housing are quite different and more restricted. Please inquire with Dr. Tina Lampe, the doctoral program coordinator, in case of need for a room.
