Welcome to HaDiKo

This is the website of the Hans-Dickmann-Kolleg in Karlsruhe. The HaDiKo is the biggest self-administered student hostel in Germany. Students of the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT), the University of applied sciences and economics Karlsruhe (TuW), the University of education and the University of cooperative education Karlsruhe and other in Karlsruhe registered students are living here.

The HaDiKo is managed by the Studentenwohnheim des Karlsruher Instituts für Technologie (KIT) e.V., as are the student dormitories Hans-Freudenberg Kolleg (HFK), Insterburg and Kolleg-am-Ring (KAR).

The dormitory

The HaDiKo (short for Hans-Dickmann-Kolleg) consists of five houses. In each of them there are living between 180 and 265 people on floors of 13-15 people. These floors each use a large kitchen and a bathroom together. But this is rarely a problem as students are working and studying at completely differnt hours.

All in all there are 999 rooms in HaDiKo, which comes near to a small village. So there will always be someone interesting, HaDiKo is a perfect place to make contacts (i.e. through activity in the self-administration).

We have here several groups whom you can join and manifold offers: I.e. there are washing-machines, romms for making music, there is a bike workshop and the HaDiNet that supplies the HaDiKo with Internet via a fiber-optical connection.
