Frequently Asked Questions

Here we want to inform you about several questions which are asked more frequently. If still some things are left unclear, please to not hesitate to reach out to us at any time.

Why are you called Haus Athena?

Athena belongs to the twelve Greek Olympioi. As the goddess of wisdom, she is the patroness of all scientists and scholars. As a dormitory for students, the Haus Athena combines the symbolic meaning of a protective shelter with the close proximity to Ludwigsburg's universities as places of science and scholarship.

Why is the symbol of the dormitory an owl?

Ever since Homer the goddess Athena was connected with the owl, possibly to indicate Athena's keen mind and wise foresight. Since then, the owl is inseparably connected with the Greek goddess and as such, the owl finds its place in the logo of our dormitory, as well.

How far away is the next train station?

The next train station "Favoritepark" is only 300 meters by foot from the Haus Athena. It takes you less than a few minutes to reach the station.

I seem to have problems with my internet connection?

For solving problems with your internet connection, please have a look at the following document (German only).

Which trains arrive at the station and how often?

The train station "Favoritepark" is connected to the train line S4 whose trains arrive and depart several times a day at the station. For further information, we refer to the train schedule which can be found at the web site of the Stuttgart public transit association.

Is it possible to park my car at the dormitory?

In the streets around the dormitory, there are a few public parking spots. If you want to reserve your own parking spot for a longer period of time, you have the option to rent one during your stay. The costs for renting the parking spot can be found at our Rental charge list.

Is there a space for parking my bike?

We have room for parking your bike in the Haus Athena. Further information will be given during the handover of your apartment.

At what time will you refund my deposit?

We will refund your deposit according to our General Rental Conditions and House Rules (German only) three months after the end of your contract.
