Moving in and out
Move-in: The day of move-in is generally the first weekday of October (winter term) and April (summer term) between 8.00 am and 4.00 pm. Due to holidays etc. there can be changes. When clicking on the link "Orientation weeks" you will find out about the updated dates.
You reach the LUE easily via S-Bahn (urban-suburban commuter railway system), getting off at "Favoritepark" station (line S4 Stuttgart-Marbach). The student village (Montessoriweg/Pestalozziweg/Peter-Eichert-Str.) is located about 3 minutes away from the station. After leaving the S-Bahn, follow the pathway in direction of train, go downstairs and turn left through the undercrossing to the left towards the student village.
That day our tutors will wait for you in the small cafetéria in the middle of the student village, they will help you to move in and hand over your room keys.
If you will arrive after 4 pm on the official move in day or if you will arrive on another day, you must inform the International Office in advance, i.e. at least two weeks before, in writing by mail to international(at)ph-ludwigsburg.de.
When making travel arrangements be sure to pay attention to German holidays: Two examples are 3rd of October (German Unification Day) and Easter, when the LUE will be closed. The student village does not have a reception and will be closed as well so in that case you will have to stay in a youth hostel on your own expense.
The same applies to your Move-out: You need to be present when the caretaker checks your room. That is only possible Monday till Friday until 4.00 pm and not on saturdays, sundays or holidays! Therefore, please do not plan to move-out outside of these office hours of the caretakers. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are the best days to move out.
Please see also arrival and departure for more information!
