FAQ: Dormitories and Corona

Dear tenants,

on April 3, most of the Corona requirements in Baden-Württemberg were dropped, including the 3G regulation and the mask requirement in some areas. We would be pleased if you would continue to voluntarily wear a mouth-nose-covering in the dormitories - especially when you visit the janitor's office or our outpost living, but also on all traffic and meeting routes. This way you protect yourselves and our employees.

The current corona regulations of the state of Baden-Württemberg can be found on the following website - please keep informed about the applicable rules: Aktuelle Corona-Verordnung des Landes Baden-Württemberg: Baden-Württemberg.de (baden-wuerttemberg.de). Find information about the Corona Ordinance for Baden-Wurttemberg in other Languages.

You still need a vaccination appointment? Visit www.dranbleiben-bw.de for current vaccination campaigns throughout Baden-Württemberg and permanent vaccination offers.


Information about moving in

Please enter the janitor's office one at a time only. We also recommend that you voluntarily continue to wear a mouth-nose-covering. This will minimize the risk of infection in the housing facilities and for our colleagues. If you need help moving in, we ask that you only bring the number of helpers really necessary for the move


I am returning/entering from abroad, what do I have to consider?

The Coronavirus Entry Ordinance currently applies uniformly throughout Germany. It regulates the registration, quarantine and verification requirements as well as the transport ban from virus variant areas. 

If you want to enter Germany from abroad, please inform yourself in advance about the necessary steps on the website of the Federal Ministry of Health: Coronavirus | Current information for travelers (bundesgesundheitsministerium.de)


Is a Corona case in my shared apartment a reason for rent reduction?

No, there is no entitlement to a reduction in rent due to a Corona case in your shared apartment or if the health authorities order measures (e.g. quarantine).


Do the residents have to pay explicit attention to something when dealing with the coronavirus-situation?

As with all infectious diseases, the following rules of conduct apply to prevent infection:

  • Wash your hands regularly and sufficiently long (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water
  • Keep your hands away from your face
  • Sneeze or cough in the crook of your arm or in a handkerchief
  • Refrain from shaking hands
  • Keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres to other people outside your household.
  • We recommend: Wear a mask voluntarily on all traffic and meeting routes in the dormitories, for example in the stairwell and elevator.
  • Ventilate regularly, especially when several people are in one room. Recommended are 10 to 15 minutes per hour.


What happens in the student dormitories if a student is infected?

In this case we will act according to the regulations of the responsible public health department. This applies in principle to all infectious diseases that can occur in the student residences.


What to do in case of suspicion? Is there a central registration office?

If there is suspicion of infection with the coronavirus because symptoms occur, contact your doctor directly by telephone or contact the emergency medical service of the public health insurance under the telephone number 116117.


Have you tested positive for COVID-19?

In this case please isolate yourself and inform the local health office.

At the same time, please also inform the responsible clerk for your dormitory at Studierendenwerk Stuttgart by mail. In this way, we can take measures on site until the local health authority contacts you.

We also recommend that you inform your roommates if you live in a shared apartment.

You are not allowed to leave your room/apartment during the quarantine. This also applies to shopping or disposing of garbage. It is best to discuss this with other flatmates who are not in quarantine. They can leave groceries outside your door.

Only leave your room to use the sanitary facilities or the kitchen - in consultation with other residents of your shared apartment. Wear an FFP2 mask when doing so! Infected and non-infected residents should not meet each other.

In the common areas of the WG there is a FFP2 mask obligation, in the case of a Corna disease.

Visits are not allowed - neither across the WG nor externally.
