That’s what we stand for
and its aim
The aim of the foundation is the instigation and maintenance of ecumenical student houses with the aim to encourage German and foreign students to live together in house sharing communities. Thereby, contributing and furthering international understanding.
It is a non profit organisation charging rents at cost price.
All confessions are welcome.
The Association for Ecumenical Student Dormitories e.V. was founded in 1957. It arose from an initiative of the then student pastor Carl Malsch together with committed members of the Protestant university congregation.
Its goal was to alleviate the housing shortage of foreign students and to enable foreign and German students to live together.
Therefore, from the beginning, half of the student dormitories of the association are inhabited by foreign students. The name of our association was somewhat modernized in 2016 to "Carl-Malsch-Foundation e.V."
