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.

trial period

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.
