For a good start in your new living space, we provide you some tips

  • Put your name on your mailbox and doorbell (if your landlord has not already done so). Your mail will not be delivered unless your name is on your mailbox. There is no need to register with the post office.
  • Arranging for telephone, internet and maybe other services (Gas, electricity); check what is included in your rent contract and what you need to choose by yourself. It pays to compare them, and online portals can be helpful. If you don’t do anything about it, you will be automatically registered at the standard provider, which is most of the time not the cheapest (does nor apply for internet).
  • Introduce yourself. When you have settled in a bit, introduce yourself to your neighbours - this is not required, of course, but it is a way of getting to know people quickly, considered polite and lets you know who your neighbours are.
  • Quiet hours. In general, noise is prohibited between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. so that everyone can get a good night‘s sleep. This means keeping music at a low volume and avoiding things like running your washing machine during those hours.
  • Cleaning responsibilities. Almost every German state has agreements specifying which tenant is responsible for cleaning the hallway or the walkway in front of the building. Find out when its your turn!
  • Tap water in many is carefully inspected, so it is normally perfectly suitable for drinking and cooking. Please use responsibly and sustainable.

Please let us know if you have any further questions, or talk to your student Buddy.
