warning notice

Please read this notice before submitting your application:

Living in a dorm requires the ability to compromise! Where several hundred people come together, many of whom live without parents for the first time and have to take care of their own household and at the same time there is one or the other language barrier, it is a special challenge for everyone to create a beautiful home together!

Attention: Our experience has shown that two groups of people will not feel comfortable in a dorm like ours: on the one hand, people who prefer to be alone and need absolute peace and who value clinically clean conditions. Community is very important to us and there will be things like celebratings in a shaerd flat once in a while, at the same time there is something like garbage service that everyone has to do equally.

On the other hand, it becomes problematic for people who think a dorm is a nightclub and prefer to live in chaos without rules. Basically, there is something like night silence and nobody can avoid the obligation to take out the rubbish of the roommates. The inhabitants are responsible for order and cleanliness in the kitchen and, in case of doubt, they must take care of this together.

Please take this seriously if you find yourself in one of the groups and look for alternatives on the Frankfurt housing market or in the surrounding area, even if the housing situation in Frankfurt is difficult! Moving within our dormitories is not possible and in case of doubt your academic performance and your psyche will suffer.
