From 01.01.2020 we shall run our student residences Pfaffenhof I, Pfaffenhof II and Straussäcker I ourselves. We would be delighted to also welcome all residents who currently have a room in one of these student residences and whose contract extends beyond 31.12.2019 as tenants again next year. We compiled important questions and answers on this topic here.
What do the new rental agreements with the VSSW with unmodified terms contain?
We offer you the room that you currently reside in at the same conditions. This also means that there will be no increase in the rent.
Is the duration of residence still max. 36 months?
Yes, the tenancy will be limited to maximum 36 months in order to offer other students the option of a student residence (rotation principle). The duration of residence may be extended in exceptional special cases, e.g. as an alternative for committed students under the tutelage of the student residence or student representation.
Is the previous tenancy considered?
Yes, the previous tenancy is taken into account.
Is an agreement until February 2020 also possible?
New rental agreements are subject to a minimum tenancy of 6 months and a maximum tenancy of 36 months. The applicant may choose the term within this period upon conclusion of the agreement. The notice of termination is 3 months.
Rental agreements that are concluded with tenants now are not subject to the minimum tenancy; tenants may also start the desired individual tenancy for a shorter period, e.g. 2 months.
Am I still the spokesperson for the student residence after the change of landlord?
There will still be tutorials and spokespeople for the student residences. We shall not make any changes to the allocation of the spokespeople for the student residences.
How can I apply for a room in a student residence?
From September there will be an application platform for the student residences Pfaffenhof I, Pfaffenhof II and Straussäcker I on our homepage. For our other student residences, you can apply to the Stuttgart Student Union.
Is there an option to change student residence?
In principle, it is possible to change the student residence if a corresponding room is available. Please contact us directly regarding this matter.
Are major modernisation measures or changes planned?
No major work is planned in the immediate future. Unforeseeable damage and defects shall be repaired quickly. We shall inform you in good time if you are affected by such measures.
