Studio apartments

For studio apartments that are part of housing construction development programs, you need a Wohnberechtigungsschein ("WBS mit besonderem Raumbedarf") for 2 rooms per person which is available at the Bürgeramt.

Joint applications

You can apply as a group using the online tool.


The application including all documents must be uploaded in full by the application deadline on 24 November 2020.

We strongly recommend that you submit your documents a few days before the application deadline to prevent server overloads towards the end of the deadline which may prevent you from submitting your application on time.

If a server overload does result in applications not reaching the studio office, no late applications can be accepted. Whenever possible, use the tool to upload your application ahead of time.
