As an independent, non-religiously or ideologically bound organization, we offer comfortably equipped student rooms in currently two dormitories, conveniently located to KIT and Karlsruhe city center.
With our service-oriented concept, the residents are to be largely relieved of duties outside their room. You take care of your studies, we take care of the shared areas.
Student residence O11
The house at Ochsentorstraße 11 was opened in 2018. It offers 24 single and one double rooms on three floors.
The good tram connection to KIT (eleven minutes), to Hochschule für Musik (University of Music) (nine minutes) as well as to Karlsruhe city center makes the location interesting for students. The central location in the middle of the historic Durlach old town has its special charm.
Student residence H1
The house in Hildebrandstrasse 1 opened in 2019 with a single floor. The conversion of two more floors came to a standstill due to the Corona crisis. At the beginning of the winter semester 2020, the remaining two floors were completed.
The house offers 27 comfortable, furnished student rooms on three floors. The location, only nine minutes from the university, is particularly attractive for KIT students. You can get to the Hochschule für Musik (University of Music) even faster.
Those who love delicious Asian food will find a restaurant on the ground floor of the house.
Rooms and services
Discussions about cleaning plans or who should bring down the garbage, you do not have to have here. Please leave the kitchen and the other shared areas so that your roommates can use them without any problems. We take care of regular cleaning, changing garbage bags, distributing mail and much more.
Of course, you are responsible for your own room. But also the painting and renovation when moving in or out is omitted for you. Our caretaker is available for technical services.
All rooms are fully furnished with a bed, wardrobe, desk, an office swivel chair, a television and a refrigerator. For hygienic reasons, we have completely dispensed with communal refrigerators in the kitchen. Fast Internet access via LAN and WLAN are available as a free additional service throughout the house.
A modern kitchen is available for common use on each floor, with mostly two ovens, two microwaves, a hob, as well as a sink and dishwasher. There are sufficient showers and toilets on all floors.
The location of the house O11
For students very important is the distance to the university. The number one light rail line runs to KIT every ten minutes on the next street corner. The journey time with line 1 is only eleven minutes. The other universities in Karlsruhe are not much further away. You can reach the Musikhochschule even faster.
A very popular residential area for students is Alt-Durlach with its beautiful old town and everything you need daily in the immediate vicinity. The residential area in The Ochsentorstraße is equally quiet and central. Shops for daily needs, doctors, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs, sports and culture - everything can be found within walking distance.
The location of the house H1
For students very important is the distance to the university. The Stadtbahn line number two runs to KIT every ten minutes on the next street corner. The journey to KIT takes nine minutes from here. The other universities in Karlsruhe are not much further away. You can reach the University of Music even faster.
The building is located in the western edge of the Durlach district, it is equally close to the Durlach train station as well as to the motorway entrance to the A5 and the A8. If you come with your own car, you are clearly better off here. Parking is free throughout the area.
Shopping facilities can be found in the immediate vicinity. Diagonally opposite you will find a large EDEKA market and a bakery, as well as a drugstore. The next ALDI is less than five minutes by bike. In the old town of Durlach you are just as fast.
The admission requirement is the presentation of a certificate of enrolment (in advance also the confirmation is sufficient) of a Karlsruhe university. In contrast to many other student dormitories, our houses are also open to doctoral students. Pupils or trainees can also apply - but students always have priority. A commitment to admission does not exist in any case. At the latest after the entry requirements have ceased to exist, the room must be returned.
For short rental our rooms are not available. The minimum rental period is two semesters (currently until 30.09.2023). Exceptions to this rule are only possible if the house could not be fully occupied at KIT after the beginning of the winter semester. So if necessary, ask from mid-October.
The monthly basic rent of the fully furnished rooms varies from 320, - to 380, - Euro due to the size, layout and location of the rooms. In addition, there is a flat rate for operating costs and services in the amount of 100, - Euro* per resident. In the dormitory O11 there is also a single double room for a student couple at a price of 500 euros.
