    • Please inform us of your exact arrival time no later than Friday (14:00) before moving in. If you inform us any later, we will be unable to guarantee the handover of the key at your preferred time.
    • In the event of a delay of more than half an hour, please telephone the named person for your key handover, or your host family.
    • Accommodation rates are calculated to take into account location (distance to school, attractiveness of the district) and furnishings/facilities of the accommodation. In all cases, please bear in mind that all our accommodation, including that in higher categories, has a ‘student’ character.

    Use of PCs, Internet and Wi-Fi

    • All F+U rooms usually offer free Wi-Fi. Please note, however, that this is a discretionary free service provided by the school, and that there may be network coverage fluctuations or outages due to technical reasons. In summer or for larger group arrivals we rent additional rooms to meet demand; information on their Wi-Fi facilities is available on request.
    • Some of our host families permit the use of their computer or Wi-Fi network for a small additional charge. Details are available on request.
    • Broadband Wi-Fi is available throughout the school building at no extra charge.
    • Compliance with German Internet Law in general and, in particular, our IT usage regulations is required at all times.



    Our F+U Hostel guests can park in the building’s inner courtyard, which is unsupervised, but closed off from the street. Fee per week: €30. Information on parking near the F+U shared accommodation, apartments and host family accommodation is available on request.

    Cleaning of Rooms and Communal Areas

    Please note that for the entire duration of your stay you are responsible for cleaning your room or private apartment. Rooms and private apartments are to be cleaned and tidied when vacated. Kitchens and bathrooms are to be kept clean. Communal areas are cleaned once a week by F+U.

    • The school is very near to the refectory of the renowned Hanns-Eisler School of Music and to the Mosaik-refectory in the same building, where you can have a reasonably priced and healthy lunch. There are also several restaurants and bistros nearby.

    • Smoking is prohibited in rooms in our shared accommodation, apartments and in the F+U hostel.
    • Kitchens and bathrooms must be left clean after use – crockery must be washed up and put away immediately.

    Extending, Changing or Cancelling

    Accommodation Bookings

    (Hostel, shared apartments, private apartments, host families)

    Applications to extend the rental period must be made four weeks before the contract’s expiry.

    An extension of the rental contract cannot be guaranteed. If, despite compliance with the four-week notice period, the currently booked room has already been reallocated, we guarantee the availability of a room in alternative accommodation.

    In this instance, the fee for changing accommodation will be waived. Contract extension applications received less than a week before contract expiry are subject to a processing fee of €50.

    Change of accommodation (at own request): €50

    Cancellation of the rental contract: If the contract parties

    conclude a rental contract for a fixed term, an earlier ordinary cancellation of the rental contract is excluded in principle (§ 542 II BGB - German Civil Code).

    However, as a gesture of goodwill we permit the cancellation of the rental contract on condition of a notice period of four full rental weeks (Sunday to Saturday). In the

    event of cancellation we charge a cancellation fee of €75 and refund any rent paid in advance. Notice of the cancellation must be submitted in writing to the Accommodation department during office opening hours.

    The twenty-week-instalment rental contract cannot be terminated; only an extraordinary cancellation is permitted.

    Transfer from and to your Accommodation

    You can travel directly and cheaply with public transport between all Berlin airports and the city centre.
