Privatzimmervermittlung

The user ID that I was sent does not seem to be valid.

Please make sure you entered the ID correctly and pay attention to capital letters. The user ID has 6 digits. Don’t forget your user ID is only valid for a period of 6 months. If you received your user ID more than 6 months ago, you need to register again.

What can I do if an offer seems dubious?

If it turns out that the details mentioned in the offer are untrue or that the offer is dubious, please report this to us. You can either fill in our feedback form or simply send an email to pzv@stwm.de.

Also, we advise you not to pay the landlord or landlady in cash. But if you do, we strongly advise you to make sure you get a receipt.

I have forgotten my user ID.

Send an email, with your name and date of birth, to pzv@stwm.de. We will email you your user ID.

My account has expired; how can I reactivate it?

In this case you must register again. You will need to send us your current certificate of matriculation. If you have any further questions regarding the online use of our Private Accommodation Service, please contact us via email at pzv@stwm.de or visit us in our office in the Alte Mensa in the Olympiadorf.

I registered and sent in the required documents some time ago, but have still not received a confirmation.

There could be different reasons for this:

  • The email address that you provided in the form was incorrect.
  • Your inbox was full when you should have received your confirmation.
  • We did not receive your documents.

In order to find out what exactly happened, please get in touch with us by email.

Some offers do not exist, although they are listed in the overview.

Is it common to transfer the deposit or rent payments to the landlord’s account in advance?

As there is always the danger of internet fraud, please never transfer any money in advance for a deposit, rent payment, or similar. As the Private Accommodation Service merely hands on address details, the Student Union does not know the landlords or landladies personally.
