Dancing? No, I can’t. Then learn it with us! It’s not so difficult, actually it’s quite simple and on top of that it’s a lot of fun. With us you will learn how to swing your dance leg even more elegantly. Our beginners’ course covers the basic steps and first figures. In the advanced course you will learn more figures, from disco fox to tango, everything is included.
You need a balance after all that studying for college? Then join our running group for a jogging tour through the nearby Trim-dich-path. Furthermore, you have the possibility to borrow mini-football goals, badmintos rackets, frisbees, dumbbells and many other utensils from our sports tutors. Another highlight is our beach volleyball court, where exciting and spectacular matches are played every year.
You enjoy singing and have not yet found the right opportunity? Or you are looking for musical variety and balance to a learning day? Or you always wanted to sing but have never sung in a choir before? Then you are just right with us. The choir offers you the perfect musical variety in your everyday life.
You always wanted to learn the guitar? The guitar tutors will show you how to elicit sonorous chords from the guitar. Here you have the opportunity to learn simple guitar fingerings for accompaniment. From beginners to professionals, everyone is welcome, the only requirement is that you bring your own instruments.
Café Gossip Tutorship
You are once again under stress in your studies and just want to relax a little from studying? Then there is only one solution: Café Klatsch on the RSH roof! The offer ranges from numerous café experiences to delicious sweets! In short: Café Klatsch is the most beautiful and pleasant way to have a café, eat a cake and get to know the dormitory and its roommates better.
Last but not least, tutors also ensure that everything runs smoothly with the Internet and
keep the copy room up and running. Well, in order not to blow up the frame, let’s keep it
be good with the enumeration here, the rest of the tutorials you will learn guaranteed
on site. Participation in the tutorials is free of charge – however, the range of offers is only as varied as the residents themselves. So we are already looking forward to your commitment!
With 260 inhabitants there is of course a lot to organize. Our home manager, Ms. Brauns, our secretaries, Ms. Niederer and Ms. Paltian, and our caretaker, Mr. Kokott, take on a large part of this.
Nevertheless, we as residents have a great deal of freedom to organise things. The home’s spokespersons act as a link between the management and the residents – one boy and one girl per house. Together with the councils of elders, who are responsible for the control of the home’s spokespersons and the cash audit, and the floor spokespersons, they form the home council, which sets the agenda for the home general meeting. At the general meeting, the concerns of the residents are discussed and, for example, new purchases are decided upon or new tutors are elected. Here you can also get involved with your ideas and help to shape dorm life.
In addition, there are many other floor activities, ranging from games and cooking evenings to joint activities like bowling or a visit to Europa-Park. By the way, on many floors, spices, dishes, cleaning utensils and similar things are available for everybody – but as these things don’t buy themselves, there are stick tutors. How it all works will be explained to you by the floor spokespersons – at the latest at the floor meeting, where the purchase of poles is discussed and new tutors are elected.
But the summer semester also has a lot to offer:
For example, on 1 May, the hiking boots for the May hike are unpacked and at the glamorous summer ball, fine evening wear is the first choice.
Last but not least, the absolute highlight is the Parking Lot Festival: all dormitories in Willy-Andreas-Allee together put on one of the biggest student open-air festivals in Karlsruhe – with two live bands, all-round catering and a guaranteed great atmosphere!
In the church
The ABH and RSH are Catholic dormitories and are supported by the Catholic parish of Karlsruhe. This is expressed above all in the way we live together – because we not only live next door to each other, but also live together. We respect each other and stand up for each other – in other words, we are Christians in everyday life. But that does not mean that you have to be Catholic to live here. After all, we find the mixture of different ways of thinking and beliefs an important enrichment. We get support from a pastoral worker who helps to develop the pastoral offer in the ABH and RSH together with us and for us and is always open for new ideas. Twice a semester there are church services, which the church service tutors prepare together with the university pastor and the pastoral worker. The services are thus “by students for students” and always take up topics that directly concern us. Attending the services is of course not obligatory.
