Nur kurz in Oldenburg?

Gästezimmer des Studentenwerks helfen mit kurzfristiger Unterkunft

Als Vorsorgemaßnahme hat das Studentenwerk Oldenburg die Vermietung der Gästezimmer bis auf Weiteres eingestellt.

Wer für kurze Zeit nach Oldenburg kommt oder vor dem Einzug in sein Studierendenappartement ein paar Tage überbrücken muss, hat die Möglichkeit, kurzfristig in den Gästezimmern in der Wohnanlage Johann-Justus-Weg unterzukommen. Auch BewohnerInnen der Wohnanlage Johann-Justus-Weg können hier bei Bedarf tageweise ihre Gäste unterbringen.

The Studentenwerk Oldenburg offers accommodation for students in several halls of residence in Oldenburg, Emden, Wilhelmshaven and Elsfleth. They are a good choice for both short and long term accommodation.

The single and double apartments have their own kitchen / kitchenette and bathroom, whereas in the shared flats, you find shared kitchens and bathrooms. Depending on the hall of residence, you can rent furnished or unfurnished rooms.

You can find further information on our halls of residence on the following pages:

(If you don't get the English version of the page right away, look for the little British flag at the top of the page.)

Please note that no matter where you are going to study, you must make sure to arrange for accommodation well before your arrival. Especially towards the beginning of the winter term in September/October, there are waiting times for practically all our rooms and we cannot guarantee that you'll get a room.

Many thanks for your interest in accommodation in one of our dorms!

In our FAQs we’ve put together all the important information you’ll need in order to apply. Please make sure to read the FAQs first before applying to avoid unnecessary mistakes!

Here are some of the most importants hints and tips:

  • The demand for rooms is often much higher than availability. An application is not a reservation and also not a guarantee that we can make a room offer for your desired moving in date. Make sure to check out alternative accommodation possibilities in Oldenburg Emden, Wilhelshaven and Elsfleth. (check the "weblinks" in the FAQs)
  • Read through the online dorm descriptions and choose the dorm and the the type of accommodation which interests you and your budget most. Please note: You may apply for one dorm only and only one application per person is accepted. Multiple applications will be automatically deleted.
  • Directly after you’ve applied, you’ll receive an e-mail asking you to confirm the attached link. Only when the link is confirmed is your application complete! To keep the waiting lists up-to-date, we will send you an automatic e-mail every 30 days. The link in this mail must be confirmed within 5 days, otherwise your application will be deleted from the system.

Important! Please do not apply using an e-mail address from the Microsoft group. Our server doesn’t send to these e-mail addresses and this means that you will lose out on an offer!
The domains affected are @live, @hotmail, @outlook, @gmx, @windowslive

  • A valid application can only be made when you have the letter of acceptance from the university/ proof of enrollment. One of these two documents must be uploaded with the application. No other documents will be accepted (CampusCard, school reports, recommendations, applications, etc)
  • Rooms are assigned according to the order of the waiting lists. As soon as we can make you a room offer, we’ll e-mail you the contract and other relevant information. To make the contract binding, the contract and all other documents must be returned to us within the given time-frame. The contract will be in German as all legal documents must be in the national language. An English version is not available.

Spezielle Wohnungsangebote

by Prawny/pixabay.comDas Studentenwerk Oldenburg kann bei Bedarf für (allein erziehende) Studierende mit Kind in den Wohnanlagen Schützenweg und Pferdemarkt unmöblierte Doppelappartements zur Verfügung stellen. Diese beinhalten zwei Zimmer sowie Duschbad und Küche mit Essbereich. Allerdings müssen Sie hier mit gewissen Wartezeiten rechnen.

 

Alles gut in Schuss – die Hausmeisterei des Studentenwerks

Hausmeisterei Werkstatt

Um die Wohnanlagen in Schuss zu halten, hat das Studentenwerk eine eigene Hausmeisterei. Diese kommt immer dann zum Einsatz, wenn Reparaturen, Renovierungen und Verbesserungen in den Zimmern, Appartements oder anderen Gebäudeteilen der Wohnanlagen anstehen. Zu finden ist die Hausmeisterei an der Wohnanlage Schützenweg 42. Sollte bei Ihnen einmal etwas kaputtgehen, nimmt die Hausmeisterei Hinweise oder Schadensmeldungen über das Internet-Formular oder in dringenden Fällen telefonisch entgegen.
