Dieses Funktion steht mobil leider nicht zur Verfügung.
Here we answer frequently asked questions about the new Tita-Cory-Campus.
If a question is not answered or not answered sufficiently, please send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Is it possible to view the rooms on the nine campuses in advance?
Viewings are not possible due to the large number of applications and inquiries and the fact that construction work is still taking place on the campus. The images and overviews shown here are intended to give an impression of the rooms and the surroundings at the TCC. Images will be added as areas are completed.
- Is it certain that I can move into my room at the beginning of the winter semester?
Yes, the construction management assured the BSW that all rooms on the TCC will be ready for occupancy and that the communal kitchens and common rooms in the shared apartments will also be completed. However, it must still be expected that construction work will still take place in other rooms and on the site.
- When is the earliest you can move into the TCC?
The rooms in houses B and C are available from mid-September. This means that the earliest move-in date – for students who get a room in these buildings – is September 15, 2022. The rooms in buildings A and D can be occupied from October 4th. In individual cases, we may be able to allow you to move in from September 28th.
- Is there internet access at the TCC?
There will be a WiFi network with internet access in the living areas and in the other rooms on campus. Internet and network access is via the Westfälische-Wilhelms-Universität (WWU-IT), which means that fast and secure Internet will be available for all residents. Students who are not studying at the WWU can apply for access to use the network on the TCC. The costs for the comprehensive Internet access are included in the additional costs.
LAN or telephone connections (TAE sockets) are not available in the rooms and premises. It is therefore not possible to conclude contracts for your own Internet connections via third-party providers. Connections for cable or satellite TV are also not available in the rooms. A TV connection for the residents is to be set up in the common rooms (probably in 2023).
- How are the rooms equipped?
All rooms are furnished with a wall unit (incl. desk) and a bed (incl. slatted frame and drawers under the bed).
All rooms have interior drapes/curtains and outside the floor-to-ceiling windows there are electrically operated blinds.
The rooms are ventilated centrally via a living room ventilation system. For this purpose, fresh air is drawn in via a central system on the roof and the used air in the room is extracted via an exhaust air device in the bathroom. The air exchange is continuous and takes place so carefully that no effects on the residents are noticeable.
The bathrooms each have a toilet, a vanity with mirror and a shower.
Mattresses (size 210 x 90 cm – but the standard size 200 x 90 cm can also be used!) and a chair/desk chair must be brought by the residents when they move in.
- Can I choose my room and how do I divide it up in the shared flats?
The room assignments and assignments run via the BSW. For organizational reasons, all residents are assigned their rooms by the BSW. As far as possible, we try to take into account the wishes or comments mentioned in the applications.
The 17 flat shares on the TCC are divided into 9 flat shares for women and 8 flat shares for men. In the case of people who have indicated “diverse” as their gender in their application, a decision will be made on a case-by-case basis and after consultation with the applicants as to which flat-sharing community is most suitable. Each building has shared flats for women and men on each floor.
- Are the flat shares only accessible to the residents or are visits also possible?
Initially, only the respective residents have free access to the flat shares. However, there are bell systems at the entrance area of the flat shares so that visitors can register. The flat shares are the private areas of the respective residents, regulations for visits must therefore be agreed in the respective floor communities.
- Can friends visit and stay overnight in my room?
The rooms of the individual residents are their private areas. Of course, guests can also be received here. It is also okay for individual guests if visitors stay in the rooms. However, permanent accommodation of other people in their own room is not permitted. – The BSW also provides guest rooms on the TCC for overnight stays.
- How are the kitchens and common rooms equipped at the TCC?
The communal kitchens contain an oven as standard, such as a stove area with two hotplates, a microwave, a kettle and a toaster. There are also numerous cupboards available. Each resident is assigned a locker in the kitchen. In the large refrigerators, each resident has their own cooling compartment and in the freezer of the flat share there are at least six compartments, so that two rooms can share one freezer compartment. In each kitchen there is a large dining table with chairs for all residents. A common room with a sofa/seating area is always adjacent to the kitchen.
- How should I imagine the first time/first semester on the new campus?
The TCC is new territory for both the employees of the BSW and the residents. We would like to develop many things together with the residents of the TCC. Of course some things will be fixed within the framework of the house rules.
What is important to us as BSW, however, is the interest and motivation of the residents to help shape the new residential and living space on the Tita-Cory-Campus.
