  • In case of delay, please call the named contact person for the key handover or your host family.
  • Accommodation rates for halls of residence and apartments are calculated to take into account both location (distance to school, attractiveness of the district) and the furnishings/facilities of the accommodation. However, please bear in mind that all our halls of residence and apartments have a ‘student’ character, including those in higher categories.

 

Internet, PC use, fitness room

  • Most halls of residence and the apartments are equipped with Internet access. We provide Internet access free of charge. Please note that it is not a high-speed Internet connection. During the summer we rent out additional rooms and apartments; information on their Internet facilities is available on request. Compliance with German Internet law is required at all times. There may be temporary disruption to Internet provision.
  • Some families allow the use of their computer for an additional charge. Detailed information is available on request.
  • You can also use the computers in our school, with free Internet access (50 computers in three IT rooms); Wi-Fi is also available from 07.30 to 20.00 Mondays to Fridays and on Saturdays from 10.00 to 16.00.
  • If you lock yourself out of your room we can provide a spare key on payment of a deposit. Please note that this service is only available during the following office hours: Monday to Friday: 8.30 to 19.00; Saturday: 10.30 to 15.30. Outside these times you will need to call a professional locksmith at your own cost; fees are between €70 and €150, depending on the service provider.
  • A laundry, a lounge and a fitness room are available for residents of the F+U Campus halls of residence.

 

Cleaning of rooms and communal areas

Please note that for the entire duration of your stay you are responsible for cleaning your room. On vacating the room, the accommodation must be clean and tidy. Furnishings that do not belong to the room and/or bulky rubbish must be removed by the occupant before moving out. Kitchens and bathrooms are to be left clean. Communal areas are cleaned up to twice a week by F+U.

 

Laundry, cooking utensils

  • Host family accommodation: Use of the washing machine once or twice a week.
  • Halls of residence/apartments: Washing machines and tumble dryers are provided.
  • Bed linen and towels: Bed linen is provided on arrival only; please bring your own towels.
  • Cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery can be hired for a fee of €40 plus a service charge of €25, subject to availability. (The hiring fee is refunded upon the return of complete, cleansets.)

 

Room Extension

Applications to extend the rental period must be made four weeks in advance of the contract’s expiry. An extension of the rental contract cannot be guaranteed. If, despite compliance with the four-week notice period, the current room has already been reallocated, we guarantee the availability of a room in an alternative hall of residence. In this instance, the fee for changing accommodation is waived. Extension requests received less than 14 days before contract expiry are subject to a processing fee of €50.

 

Accommodation relocation (at own request): €60

 

Cancellation of the rental contract

If the contract parties conclude a rental contract for a fixed term, the earlier ordinary cancellation of the rental contract is generally excluded (§ 542 II BGB - German Civil Code). However, as a gesture of goodwill we permit the cancellation of the rental contract subject to the following conditions of notice:

  1. By Tuesday, 15.30, after moving in: Fee: one week’s rent.
  2. After this time, cancellation is only possible with four full rental weeks’ notice (Sunday to Saturday), plus a €75 cancellation fee.
  3. The administration fee is non-refundable.

If cancellation is confirmed by F+U, rent prepaid for the period after the amended contract expiry is refunded, minus the fees listed in points 1, 2 and 3 above. Notice of the cancellation must be submitted in writing during Accommodation department opening hours (room 10, Monday to Friday, 12.15-15.30).

 

Changes to bookings for accommodation/Host families

Changes to booking from accommodation with host families or in halls of residence are possible subject to availability and a notice period of two weeks.

Parking is available in the Concordia hall of residence's unsupervised car park for €25 per week. There is public, paid parking available in the school building (approx. € 125 per month).

 

House rules:

Our house rules are available on request (languages@fuu.de). Please find an extract of our house rules below:

  • Smoking is strictly prohibited in all areas of our residences, including on the balconies and terraces – this also applies to hookahs/shishas.
  • Rooms must be cleaned regularly. This also applies to the communal areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, shower and toilet.

Radios, televisions and computers must be turned down to low volume. Cooking and showering during this period is prohibited.
