There are different rules for living in the dormitories of the Studentenwerk Göttingen, which we would like to inform you about before applying online. In addition to the general rental conditions, you can download our occupancy regulations and the user rules for internet use in our dormitories.
General rental conditions
The rental of dormitory rooms of the Studentenwerk Göttingen is based on occupancy regulations for dormitories/residential properties. This was decided by the Board of the Studentenwerk Göttingen and has been valid since 15/07/2021.
User Regulation for internet use
In cooperation with the University of Göttingen, we provide the connection to the Internet via the so-called dormitory network in the dormitories. Participation in the dormitory network begins with the move-in. The use of the Internet is based on a user regulation (as of 20/03/2019).
