Important note: The raffle for winter term 2017/2018 has already taken place. Please do not apply for the raffle anymore.

Raffle of accommodation for the 2019/20 winter semester

Between 15 May and 15 July 2019, the Munich Student Union will raffle rooms in its halls of residence (rental contracts beginning on 01 October 2018) for students beginning their courses (bachelors, masters; including students who have changed university) at Munich Universities in the winter semester. Exchange student are not eligible to take part. Please be aware that only accommodation in Munich and Freising will be raffled, but not in Rosenheim.

Entry to the raffle is restricted to the time period from 15 May to 15 July 2019, and participants may enter only once. Multiple entries are not permitted and will result in offenders’ names being removed from the waiting list for student accommodation.

In order to enter the raffle you need to visit the Munich Student Union internet page:

and fill out the normal application form for a student accommodation, adding the information “Erstsemester im Wintersemester 2019/20” (commencing studies in the 2019/2020 winter semester) in the “Hinweisfeld” (space for extra information). You will then be automatically entered into the raffle. If the “Hinweisfeld” is left blank, you will not be entered in the raffle, but placed on the normal waiting list. Please note that by filling in a “1” in the field “Number of terms”, you will not automatically be included in the room raffle”.

Our general conditions for application are valid also here. Applicants can select—as usual—their three preferred halls of reference.

There is no guarantee that the winners will be offered accommodation in one of their preferred halls of residence. It may arise that an applicant wins a place in another hall of residence. It remains the applicant’s decision whether or not to accept this place.

Applications received after 15 July 2019 can no longer be entered into the raffle and applicants’ names will be placed on the normal waiting list.

The raffle is taking place on 24 July 2019, winners will be notified by e-mail as of 26 July 2019. This e-mail will ask winners to then accept the offer of accommodation by a certain date.

Those who are not lucky will as well receive an electronic message as of 26 July 2019. Their names and application data will be kept regularly on their preferred residences' waiting lists.

No recourse to correspondence or legal action!
