Dormitory rooms

If you wish, you can reserve a room in one of the student dormitories of the Studierendenwerk of the University of Trier (while stocks last!). Accommodation is provided in single rooms in various student dormitories close to campus or in the city center. IFK participants will be accommodated near the university in the dormitories "Tarforst", "Kleeburger Weg" and "Petrisberg".

Please note that these are student dormitories with the usual, simple standard.

All rooms or apartments (single, double and triple) have their own mini-kitchen (with 2 hotplates, NO oven) and a bathroom. Bed linen is provided by the university, please bring your own towels. There are usually NO or few kitchen utensils in the mini-kitchen. However, there are often (cooking) utensils and cutlery left behind in apartments by other students, so course participants can borrow some from each other.

If you would like to reserve a room, please note this on the online registration form when you register.

Cost of dormitory room for the time of the complete course: see here

If more than one person wishes to be housed in the same dormitory, OR if you wish to have a single apartment, you must specifically note this on the registration form. The course administration will make every effort to accommodate requests made in good time – however, we cannot give definite assurances, as the allocation of rooms depends on the extent and type of available accommodation on the part of the Studierendenwerk. A later change is not possible for organizational reasons.

When planning your trip, please note that it is not possible to move into the room earlier than the day of arrival or to leave later than the day of departure!

Also, you will have to present a deposit of 50 € upon arrival, which will be returned to you upon departure if the room is handed over in good condition.

Please note:

  • If you have reserved a dormitory room, you will pay a deposit of 50 € immediately after arrival, in addition to the rent.
  • Washing machines and drying facilities are available in all dormitories. Your bed linen will be provided by the university

However, all other movable items (e.g. towels, dishes and other household goods) are NOT provided and must be brought along if needed!

How can I find private accommodation in Trier?
