Preparing your Move-in

Around one month before your arrival, you need to prepare your move-in into the dormitory. You will receive further instructions from the Studentenwerk via email.

  1. Paying deposit and first rents

Transfer the deposit and the rents for your apartment in good time to the Studentenwerk's account. The deadline for the transaction, as well as the account details, are included in the confirmation for your dorm room, which you will receive in an email from the Studentenwerk.

Please note:
If you do not transfer the money for deposit and rents in time, you will lose your claim for the apartment without further notice! In this case, you will have to take care of accommodation in Augsburg by yourself. The payment needs to arrive on the Studentenwerk’s account within the deadline. Please bear in mind that your transfer might take a few days to go through.

  1. Scheduling a move-in date with the dorm manager

Contact the dorm manager of your dorm and set a date for your move-in. You will receive the manager's contact details in an email by the Studentenwerk. The dorm managers are best to be reached by phone. Ask your tutor for help with the phonecall.
