Rent composition, rent allowance and rent increase
The total rent you pay to DUWO is the (basic) gross rent and the service costs added together. The basic rent is the amount you pay for the use of your home or room. The gross rent is a combination of the basic rent and service costs, such as the costs for gas, water and electricity.
Adjustment service costs
Normally, DUWO increases the (basic) rent and the advance payments of the service costs every year on 1 July. We keep the rent increase as limited as possible, so that your rent remains affordable. Due to the increased energy costs, DUWO has decided to adjust the service costs as of 1 January 2023.
Are you renting a self-contained student room? You may be eligible for rent allowance. In some DUWO student complexes, you may qualify for a rent allowance even if you are renting a non-self-contained room.
Log in via the button below to see if this also applies to your room. Here you will also find the information you need to apply for the rent allowance.

DUWO University Housing students also pay for the upholstery of the room (and possibly for the furniture). You can find this amount under "service costs". The rent for your room is therefore slightly higher than for a standard student room.
