Application

You have to fill out an application form. The currently most important allocation criterion is the incoming date of the form. Disabled and chronically ill persons are given priority. A list of apartments and rooms and the corresponding rent can be found on our homepage.

Application requirements

You are a student either at the related University or the related ‘Hochschule’
You are not older than 32 years

Equipment

Rooms and apartments are furnished. You will find hardly some space for additional furniture.

Complete rent

The rent includes water, energy, TV-antenna, internet access. Normally you have no additional costs to budget.

Amount of rent

The amount of rent is derived from the actual costs caused by the building and by personnel. The ‘Studierendenwerk’ may not overcharge, nor show losses. The rent is calculated with full occupancy. Any minor occupancy rate would cause significantly higher rents. Most students take advantage of the maximum residence time and thus benefit from the scheme.

Move-in

In general your contract will begin either at 4/1 or at 10/1. Please agree a move-in date with the responsible caretaker. On weekends and holidays, the caretakers have off, which decreases our costs.

Move-out

In general your contract ends either in March or in September. This effects full occupancy. Please agree a handover date with the responsible caretaker. On weekends and holidays, the caretakers have off, which decreases our costs.

Goodwill

Much of what we could do for you is untitled and admits no legal claim. In most cases we can process your request.

Chronically ill and disabled

receive preferential housing. Please add the appropriate certificates to your application form.f

Pets

Non-toxic small animals are allowed. Please reflect on the time budget an animal requires. It shall commonly be kept in a cage or a terrarium which offers sufficient space for your animal. In case of a neglect of the home or a harassment of your neighbors your animals or yourself will be expelled immediately. More details in the house rules or on request.

Corridors

are emergency exits and must be kept clear. Please clean self induced excessive dirt like lost waste by yourself. Shoes, inline skates, shoe racks, umbrella stands, clothes, boxes and so on are prohibited without exception.

Hanging

To hang pictures, mirrors and so on, you may drive small nails up to 2 mm or 1/16” thickness into the wall. You may use removable adhesive tape everywhere. Tape, leaving tracks, or thick nails will cause damages. We charge self-induced damages. Please contact the caretaker in any case of doubt. He will advise you.f

We charge damages in the amount of our primary costs. Examples are a broken window, a cracked wash-bowl, screw holes in furniture, window frames or walls, excessive dirt and more. We recommend to consider a private insurance.

You may park your bicycle for free in a bicycle garage, in a bicycle room in the basement or in a stand outdoors.

Car parking

Parking grounds are cheap or partly for free. In the student residence in Koblenz Metternich, we offer underground parking for cars and motorbikes. The most expensive parking is found in emergency access roads, and if you use disabled parking spaces without a handicapped ID. We would get your car towed by a professional firm, on your own expense of course.

Key

Your apartment key must not be copied or imitated. As obvious, the key is part of a locking system. Thereby a legally operating key service will reject such requests.

Sublease

To sublease your apartment to an entitled student, you have to fill a request form. During the sublease the rent is still charged to your account. You may of course suggest an entitled student, but we do not require this to agree a sublease request. We require a fee to agree the request finally. The sublease does not prolong your contract with us.
The advantage of a sublease is to recharge your rent to someone else in the short term for basically any period of time and also to keep your apartment for your return. In exchange, you bear all risks associated with the sublease.f

Internet

Internet access with a time and data flat rate is included in the rent. It runs only by patch cable, not wireless. The download speed reaches currently 2.5 to 6.3 Mbit/s, depending on the residential complex and the user behavior. For own, wired Internet connection, please see phone. private satellite dishes on the windowsill outside are forbidden.

Phone

All rooms are supplied with a phone alignment and either a TAE or western socket. You can thus assign an own separate landline and DSL. We currently recommend to compare the activation fees with costs for mobile telephony and mobile internet.

TV alignment

Koblenz, Karthause: home cable connection with the usual channels.
Koblenz, Metternich: satellite dish with central receiver installation, up to 20 channels.
Remagen: satellite dish, own receiver required, most Astra channels.

Intercom

The digital intercom deters many, but can be intuitional operated from the most on the first try. The device displays in plain German what it expects from you.

Just moved?

The spokesmen of the student residences hold mostly a greeting. Just be surprised. The spokesmen are well versed in many related things and have a quite good relationship with us. They do not tell us everything they know and we cannot do everything they would like.
