Student housing; application for funding

The state supports the creation and maintenance of student housing with funds from public budgets.



The prerequisite for funding is an urgent, non-temporary need for state-subsidized housing for students at the respective university location.

Housing for students is only subsidized on properties that are conveniently located to the university.

Occupancy commitment

The subsidized places in halls of residence may only be occupied by students in need for the duration of the occupancy commitment period of 25 or 40 years. Foreign students must be given appropriate consideration. If necessary, up to 20% of the subsidized places may be allocated to trainees in a state-recognized training occupation.


The application for funding must be submitted in duplicate to the district administrative authority responsible for the building project. This authority checks that the documents are complete and that the building regulations have been complied with and forwards the application (single copy) to the granting authority, the Bavarian State Ministry of Housing, Building and Transport.

The funding is paid out in installments according to the progress of construction and must be applied for at the district administrative authority.


Measures begun without the prior approval of the Bavarian State Ministry of Housing, Building and Transport will not be funded.
