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).

Our new dormitory is waiting for you - move in on 01 March 2022!

Finally, our sixth building, the Schroff-Kolleg, is completed. From March 2022 it will offer space for 103 students from Karlsruhe. With a private bathroom in your room (approx. 15.60 m², including 2.70m² bathroom) and modern furnishings in the kitchen and common room, seven corridors with 14 to 16 rooms each are waiting for students to create a cozy living community.

Apply now for a room starting in March!


The dormitory

The HaDiKo consists of six houses. In each of them there are living between 103 and 265 people on floors of 13-16 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 different hours. The new building even offers a private bathroom in each room.

All in all there are 1102 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, rooms for making music, there is a bike workshop and the HaDiNet that supplies the HaDiKo with Internet via a fiber-optical connection.
