Terms of Admission
Applicants must be registered at the University of Basel during their stay in Basel or participate at an exchange programme of our University.
For statutory reasons, we may not admit neither students of other institutions (e.g. Music Academy, FHNW) nor students coming to Basel for an internship.
We let rooms for an entire term (one semester), at least.
The rental agreements follow the usual Swiss standards. There are - as it is typical for Switzerland - detailed house rules. (The German version [PDF / 283 KB] has not been translated, but will be explained to those who do not understand sufficiently this language).
The rental agreements are limited in time; extensions up to 10 semesters are feasable.
Students of Theology who live with their partner may apply for one of the 3-room-apartments at the St. Alban-Rheinweg.
Sorry, no more rooms available for the upcoming semester, fall 2013.
Date of Application and Admission
If you are interested in renting a room, please send in the application form.
Towards the end of each term, we know how many rooms are available.
The direction decides on the admissions in early May for the autumn term, and in early December for the spring term.
There are always more applications than free rooms. For the necessary selection the date of the application is not decisive. We rather consider
- the number of available rooms
- the balance between female and male students
- the mix of fields of study and nationalities
- the convincing power of an application
