During the press conference on the fire in the Studentenstadt Freimann on 16.02.2021 (police press officer).

In the early hours of Tuesday, 16.02.2021, a tragic incident occurred in the Studentenstadt Freimann. A fire broke out in the cellar of one of the student halls of residence. The exact cause of the fire in the hall of residence still remains unknown. Two students were seriously injured by the fire. One student was so seriously injured that she passed away on 1 March after a long struggle. All our thoughts are with her parents, relatives, fellow students and friends.

One of the consequences of the fire was that all our buildings have been reinspected specifically with regard to fire safety. After a thorough re-examination regarding fire safety and as a result of an external expert report from 12.04.2021, there is unfortunately no other choice as to renovate the HSH (House 9) as soon as possible. We are very sorry to say that it is therefore absolutely necessary for all residents to move by 30.09.2021.

However, as you presumably still have unanswered questions, we have put together a list of answers to several of the questions that are to be expected.

On that page you can also have a look at the up-to-date FAQs concerning the fire in House 13.
