Profile of the Catholic Student Residence Halls

Currently the Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising offer around 1,800 places in the student residence halls in their possession. The goal is not merely to offer inexpensive student housing, but to provide the residents with an experience of community and shared life in the Christian spirit, supervision and activities, as well as shared decision-making and responsibility among the residents. Community life in this phase of a person’s life offers an opportunity for personal development. Students are empowered with positive life experiences and also positive experiences with the church that can spur them to ask questions and provoke deeper thinking. As the central contact person, the house manager/administrator provides for a special quality in the Catholic student residential halls. Residential hall management and students are responsible for the content of the events, community life and the atmosphere in the hall in the framework of shared decision making and responsibility. Various organisations are responsible for the Catholic student residential halls: The Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, independent church foundations, orders, church works organisations (Missio) and private associations (taken from:

The student residential hall in the Church Centre is a member of the Bundesverband Katholischer Studentenwohnheime e.V. (German National Association of Catholic Student Residence Halls):
