Residence hall tutors

Our residence halls offer you a lot more than just a room with a kitchen and bathroom. There are sauna, exercise and common rooms; places to make music; workshops; and a lot more. The administration of these rooms is left to the students themselves. That's why there are numerous tutorages that you can get involved in. As a thank you, you get an additional semester of living in the residence hall!

More information and the contact details of the students coordinating the tutorages can be found on the posters that are on display in the individual residence halls – or you can contact your caretaker.  



Buddy programme

Would you like to help international students find their feet in Germany and in the residence hall? In cooperation with the University of Stuttgart, we organise the buddy programme called With joint leisure activities and events, buddies and international students can get to know each other better and exchange news, views and ideas.

  • Welcoming new international students at the start of the semester
  • Helping them move into the residence hall
  • Helping them with paperwork
  • Being the person the foreign students can ask about the residence hall and their studies
  • Organising leisure activities such as events in the residence halls

  • You will still live in one of our dormitories for at least one more semester or are a student at the University of Stuttgart
  • You have already completed at least 3 semesters in your major subject
  • You speak fluent German and English
  • You have time in March, April, September and October
  • You enjoy organising things and want to make an active contribution

As a thank-you, you are rewarded with, among other things, an extra semester in the dormitory, a certificate confirming your voluntary work, and opportunities for further education in the intercultural field.
