studio Apartments

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

Joint applications

You have the possibility to apply together with other artists.
In this case you send all documents in ONE e-mail, 10 MB per person max.
Subject: "application <your last name>_<your first name>_<your artist*name>_TOGETHER WITH_<last name partner>_<first name partner>_< artist*name partner>"

Please note that for technical reasons it is no longer possible to apply alone and as a group at the same time. You must decide beforehand on a type of application (individual application or group application).


The documents must be received by the Studio Office no later than the application deadline (= arrival of the e-mail in the Studio Office by 23:59 pm).
