For applicants

The application

Are you enrolled at a university or college? Then you can apply here. Our checklist shows you what other documents you’ll need for the application process. You can upload these at the same time if you want. 

Our administrators, Savills Property Management Deutschland GmbH, will check over your application and availability within your chosen apartment category. If there’s one available, Savills will arrange a viewing with you. If not, you can go into the applicant pool (waiting list).

Of course it’s possible to get an impression of Quartillion, its apartments, the concept and the location. Our rental team would be happy to make an appointment with you: Just send us an email or give us a call. You can also fill in the “request viewing” section of the application form.


Visits depend on the availability of the apartments and can be arranged with our administrator.

If your chosen apartment type is no longer available, we’d be happy to place you in our applicant pool (waiting list). Just check the “place in applicant pool” box at the first step of the application process. We’d also be happy to inform you of other apartment types and their availability.
