Students of all disciplines are eligible to apply to the Fichtehaus. There are no schematic application requirements. New applications are normally processed for the summer semester in January and February and for the winter semester in June and July. The application is read by a four-person committee chosen each semester by the house.

Please enclose the following documents with your application (Numbers 1 and 2 can be written together in one document):

   1. a letter of motivation in which you explain why you would like to move into the Fichtehaus and how you could get involved.
   2. a formulated curriculum vitae (as a text).
   3. a photo of you would be nice, but is not mandatory (does not have to be a passport photo)

Send the application to bewerbungen[at] or send a letter with the heading: "Bewerbungsgremium" to the Johann-Gottlieb-Fichtehaus. This will ensure that the letter is not mistaken for anything else other than an application.

For us it is important that your personal statement or résumé gives us an insight into your social, artistic or creative interests as well as other commitments and reasons for wanting to live in the Fichtehaus. In addition we would like to invite you to an interview as this allows us to get to know you more, ask questions and show you the house. Applications are welcomed throughout the year but most rooms only become available towards the beginning of a new semester.
