Probleme Internationaler Studierender

It would be better if the process of how the Studentenwerk allocates rooms in the dormitory would be more transparent. I registered for a room as an international student for the winter semester of 2023/2024 back in February and I have to this day never heard back from them. I think they could improve their services by sending out monthly updates on the status of whether you still have a chance at getting a room that semester. In case you don’t have a chance, it is still possible to decide to study somewhere else. I think they should also work with a centralized waiting list so it would not be necessary to send them a reminder email after your application so they do not ‚forget‘ your application.
