Dear international students. We have recieved messages bysome of you whose rental contracts are to expire soon and who are scared they could end up homeless for a certain time due to issues in connection to COVID-19.
The first instance you should consider contacting over this is the Förderverein für in Not geratene Studierende. They can provide you with financial and mental aid. https://www.asta.tu-darmstadt.de/asta/en/soziales/foerderverein
Another instance you should consider contacting is the Welcome and Housing Department of the TU. They could help you find a new temporarily home. https://www.intern.tu-darmstadt.de/dez_viii/wohnengaestehaeuser/index.en.jsp
We would, however, also like to encourage you to contact your fellow students over this. A lot of shared appartments in Darmstadt are able to house couchsurfers for a couple of days or weeks. So try to ask around, if s. o. has a spot for you on their couch.
Best regards and wishes,
Your Student Union
