Moving in

Step 1: The moving in date in the dormitory

Step 1: The moving in date in the dormitory

  • In principle, you can move in on any working day (Monday-Friday) from the beginning of your contract

  • On Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays, no move in is possible in principle. 

  • Go directly to your dormitory on the day you move in. There you will find the janitor office.

  • When can I move in?

    • On the first working day of the start of the contract at the beginning of the semester, you must expect waiting times (October 01 and April 01).

      • For these dates special regulations apply to the service hours of the janitors. We will inform you about this in advance by e-mail. 

    • On all later working days in the month (from October 2 and April 2) you can move in during the office hours of the caretaker. If necessary, a prior appointment with the janitor is advantageous.  

      • If you have been standing in front of the janitor's office of the dormitory for a longer period of time during the regular office hours or at the agreed upon date and cannot reach the janitor in his office or by phone, he might be on the way to another move-in in the house. If you have waited for a longer time, you can call the dormitory administration: +49 6131 392 66 48 and we will try to help you. 

  • You can find the contact information with the telephone number of your dormitory on the page "Caretaker Office Hours".

Step 2: What do I need to bring?

Step 2: What do I need to bring?

When moving in, you should bring your rental contract and an identification document (identity card, passport). So we can allocate your room/apartment more easily.

In the apartments you will only find the furniture indicated. That means you have to bring your own dishes, bedding, etc.! We are happy to offer you a basic equipment for the room, the basic pack, as a jump start.

You can buy a shower curtain from the janitor at a price of 5,-€ and matching shower rings at a price of 2,-€. If something is not in stock, please contact the department of housing by email!
 

 

Step 3: How do I get to my dorm?

You can find a map right here .

If you travel by public transportation, use the mobility planner of “Mainzer Mobilität”.

Please remember: On the day you move in you need to go to your dormitory, you signed the contract for. Please, do not go to the adminstration office.

Step 4: Room & key handover by our caretaker

Step 4: Room & key handover by our caretaker

You will receive your key in your dormitory.

A moving-in protocol will be issued when the dormitory is handed over. Please take a close look at your room when you first enter it. If there is any damage, you must report this to the caretaker within the first 2 weeks after moving in.

If this does not happen, it will be assumed that you have caused the damage and your room will be considered free of damage when you move out!

Step 5: Room decoration

Step 5: Room decoration

Your room is furnished with bed, wardrobe, desk, chair and shelf, possibly bathroom and kitchenette. How you decorate your four walls is up to you - but try to avoid holes. Because, you have to hand over the room again the way you took it over. That means: without any damages like holes and clean.Your room is furnished with bed, wardrobe, desk, chair and shelf, possibly bathroom and kitchenette.

Step 6: Activate internet

Step 6: Activate internet

In the age of tablets, smartphones and computers, nobody wants to do without an internet access.
In our dormitories, the volunteer students of the “Netzwerk-AGs” (short: NAG) are responsible for setting up the internet connection. To activate the connection, they need your MAC address and the number of the network socket in your room.

You can find detailed information and contact details on the page “Internet in the dormitory” and on the notice board in your dormitory.

Please note: Before you can go online, you need an active account of the ZDV. All students of the Johannes Gutenberg University get their internet access with their enrolment directly from ZDV at JGU.
Students of the HS Mainz and the TH Bingen receive access from the Studierendenwerk Mainz. Detailed information on “Internet in the dormitory”.

Step 7: Activate Autoload for your StudiCard

Step 7: Activate Autoload for your StudiCard

The StudiCard, which is also the key to the room doors in most of our dormitories, is required to pay for the use of washing machines and dryers. The easiest way to recharge the StudiCard is via Autoload. You can activate it quickly and easily by e-mail using this form (Please edit your personal data in the fillable pdf form).
 
The StudiCard is also used as a payment method in many other areas, such as our canteens and cafeterias to pay for your meal or for copies in libraries and for printouts in ZDV.
