The house consists of two adjoining buildings. In the larger main house, there are two large shared flats with 8 students and one with 10 students. In the smaller adjoining house, another 10 students live in two smaller shared flats of 5 people each. Each shared apartment has its own kitchen, toilets and showers. All rooms have a washbasin and can be rented partially furnished. Some rooms are also equipped with bunk beds.
There are numerous common rooms and areas that are available to all residents.
Those interested in theological standard works and writings can enjoy their own specialist library. The stock covers the basic theological disciplines Old & New Testament, Church and Dogma History, Systematic & Practical Theology as well as Philosophy, History of Religion and Philosophy.
In addition, the library offers up to eight students a quiet place to work, which is particularly popular during exam periods.
Our two common rooms are often used for leisure activities:
The refectory (originally the dining hall) is the largest common room and, with its seating, is used for games and film evenings, house services, meetings and, with its two pianos, also for making music. The TV room can accommodate 10 people (at least according to experience), who have a TV with a music system and a cupboard full of board games at their disposal.
The prayer room is used, among other things, as a place of silence and pause. In addition, the weekly devotions take place here, which can be prepared by each resident. After the devotions, we often go to the wine cellar for a wine cellar evening (spoiler: there is not only wine). This bar cellar is ideal for keeping up to date or simply getting away from the stress of university.
In good weather, our south-west facing garden is a popular place to spend time. It offers many opportunities to relax or study, enjoying our own garden furniture or the lawn, which is tended by the gardeners. The large area also offers space for sports activities and garden parties. Several vegetable beds and a fruit tree provide us with fresh food during harvest time.
