Top location at the KHG residence, Edith Stein-Haus

You really can’t get any closer to the university: the Katholische Hochschulgemeinde (KHG) residence at Edith-Stein Haus is immediately opposite the main university in the 1st district. This means you are not only a short distance from lectures and the library, but you are also in the heart of the student quarter with many lovely little places and leisure options. The beautiful Wilhelminian-style building offers rooms in various categories for a total of 100 residents.

The Katholische Hochschulgemeinde offers a special service at this location for residents interested in the faith! You can find more information on the website of the KHG. The KHG Chaplains may require an interview with applicants. Therefore Akademikerhilfe will forward your name, email and telephone to KHG.
