Guesthouses Ditmarstraße and Frauenlobstraße
These guesthouses are located very close to each other. These properties belong to the Stiftung zur Förderung der internationalen wissenschaftlichen Beziehungen der J.W. Goethe- Universität, a foundation that promotes scientific exchange. The guesthouses contain more than 22 furnished apartments. The minimum rental period is one month, the maximum one year.
Amenities of the apartments (for one, two, or 2.5 persons):
Living and/or Bedroom
There is a laundry with two washing machines and two dryers.
The apartments are cleaned once a week, and the sheets and towels replaced.
Pets and animals are not allowed in the guesthouse!
Access to the Internet
Both guesthouses have wireless LAN (W-LAN).
You need an account with Frankfurt University in order to use the University’s wireless network. Your hosting institute has to apply for that account. The person (director, secretary) responsible for your hosting institute’s internal cost unit can do this online at https://kartenservice.uni-frankfurt.de/mitarbeitercard/login. Your data must be entered online. Registration of the relevant staff member is mandatory prior to their first use of the network. You will find further information for your institute at http://www.rz.uni-frankfurt.de/accounts/index.html
You can visit the HRZ, hand in your printed application form and receive your account data immediately. Also, you can bring in your laptop in order to get help to set up your wireless connection. If you don’t need assistance, you can send your application via internal mail, and you will receive your data in the same way.
Further information on W-LAN access (only in German).
Arrival and moving into the room/ apartment
You can move into your room/apartment from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 12 noon to 1p.m. on Friday. If you wish to move in at another time (i.e. on a weekend), this is only possible if your mentoring professor has picked up your key ahead of time.
