If you are going to live in a student hall of residence, go to the Studierendenwerk at Moritzstraße 18 - Campus Center, 3rd floor.
- Mon to Fri: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
If you arrive outside of these opening times, arrange an alternative move-in date as early as possible.
If you are going to live in a student residence in Witzenhausen, please contact Mr. Mentz and arrange a moving-in date:
In order to make your first few days in Kassel a little easier, the Student Services Organisation can provide you with a range of basic necessities, such as sheets, bed covers and pillows, cooking utensils and crockery. They can be bought when you arrive or in advance when you book your room. Further information can be found on the Student Services website.
Arrange a date and time for moving in with your landlord or flatmates before you arrive. You should know your arrival time and have a telephone number on hand just in case you are delayed.
Licence fee for general public access to radio and television
Every household has been required to pay a flat-rate licence fee for general public access to radio and TV since January 2013. The monthly amount is €17.98 and payment has to be made every three months.
If you live in a shared flat, only one member of your flat has to pay the fee. The person paying the fee is then entitled to demand the respective share from his or her flat mates. Please take note that students receiving BAföG (state grant) can apply for exemption from this fee.
Further information on this issue can be found on the Student Services website.
Rental confirmation from landlord
When you move in, the landlord or owner must sign a so-called rental confirmation form ("Wohnungsgeberbestätigung"), which you will need to show when you register at the Citizens' Office. We recommend that you print the form and ask the landlord to sign it on the day that you move in.
