What happens in between applying and moving in?

1. Application

After applying, you will receive an automatic confirmation via email. In this email, you will find an overview of the application data. Furthermore the email will remind you of when to next upload your certificate of matriculation if you want to remain on the waiting list.

You will receive another email reminding you to upload your certificate of matriculation about 4 weeks before the deadline.

After uploading the certificate of matriculation you will once again receive an automatic confirmation via email. This email will also inform you about the waiting periods. Furthermore you will be informed that the offer for an accommodation will be sent out about 4-8 weeks before moving in would be possible.

2. Waiting period

The stated waiting periods are meant to give students a rough idea. These waiting periods are based on experience. The position on the waiting list is no reliable index of the exact move-in-date as the Studierendenwerk München Oberbayern can only estimate how many students will be moving out. We kindly ask you to take a note of your application date and to consider the stated waiting periods. Please note that we will not give you any information concerning your position on the waiting list.

3. Tenancy agreement

3.1 Accommodation offer ("Festanschreiben")

  • Acceptance of accommodation

    The applicant will receive an accommodation offer via email including a deadline for handing in the direct debit authorization. By sending back the direct debit authorization, you automatically accept the offer. The accommodation offer also contains the contact details of the administrative office which is responsible for handling all matters concerning the tenancy agreement. When signing the tenancy agreement, you will be informed about the handing over of the keys.

  • Non-acceptance of accommodation → Application expires!

    Should the Studierendenwerk München Oberbayern not receive any reaction from the applicant regarding the accommodation offer, the application will expire. The applicant will be removed from the waiting list.

3.2 Quick accommodation offer ("Schnellanschreiben")

Due to various circumstances, rooms occasionally become available at short notice.

If the Studierendenwerk München Oberbayern is looking for a new tenant at short notice, it sends out what is referred to as "Schnellanschreiben" (quick accommodation offers) to several students at the same time.

This means that the accommodation offer is sent out to a higher number of students than the number of rooms available. The offer is not binding, which means that if the Studierendenwerk München Oberbayern receives no reaction from the applicant, the applicant will remain on the waiting list. The applicant who responds first, will get the accommodation.
