The application process
You can only be admitted to our student dormitory if you are a regular student of the state universities in Munich; guest students are generally excluded. In the selection process, the admissions committee takes into account the applicant’s personality, commitment, economic circumstances and social eligibility. Interest in political issues in the spirit of the name our dormitory bears is expected, as well as commitment to the dormitory community and dormitory self-governance.
Below you will find the application forms for the Geschwister Scholl e.V. student dormitory and for the Marchionini student dormitory, which is co-managed by our administration. Please be sure to read the fact sheets as well as the description of the probationary period for more information before applying.
There is no deadline for applying, as move-in & move-out dates in both residence halls do not depend on semester times. Received complete applications will be evaluated approximately two months later, you will be informed about the result immediately by e‑mail. In case of a successful application, you will first be placed on the waiting list. You will only receive an offer of a place to live by e‑mail if a room becomes available and you are the next on the waiting list according to our allocation criteria (male-female-quota, national-foreigner-quota). The move-in dates are then usually set for the 1st of the following month, but individual arrangements may be possible.

Information sheet for applicants for admission to Schollheim
The information sheet contains general explanations about the requirements for applicants, the application process and explanations about the application form.
Application form Schollheim
A completed application form can be sent by mail or in person to the administration of the Schollheim.
If you are offered a rental contract by the administration, the period of residence is normally limited to 3 years, of which the first year is the so-called trial period. In order to evaluate the trial period, at the end of the first 6 months after moving in, the hallway residents are asked about you as a new neighbor in an anonymous survey. It is relevant whether you fulfill your community duties, behave appropriately towards your fellow residents and participate in community life. The mediator department will evaluate the surveys and use them to decide whether you have passed the probationary period and may continue to live in the residence hall. If you get along well with your community, passing the probationary period should not be a problem.
The application process for the extension of residence time
Six months before the end of the regular residential contract period of 3 years, you can apply for a residential extension. To do so, you must submit an extension application, submit a half-page letter of motivation, and have demonstrated commitment during the first 3 years to show the required number of HSV points. Subsequently, the home councils conduct an anonymous survey among the hall mates about the applicant’s whereabouts – similar to the trial period. Based on the application, letter of motivation, points, survey and possibly other information, the admission committee decides on the application. If the decision is positive, one can expect a one-year extension of the lease. Several extensions can be applied for, but it should be noted that the necessary number of HSV points increases with each extension.
