The guest houses

Each year TU Darmstadt welcomes a large number of international visiting academics, who come to study and teach at the university. Our guests from across the globe find a “home away from home” in one of our 56 guest apartments in our two guest houses.

Otto-Wolfskehl-Haus offers international researchers coming to TU Darmstadt modern accommodations directly adjacent to the Lichtweise campus.

Built in 1898 and restored in Art Noveau style in 1910, Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus is an example of this unique architectural style that has become a landmark in Darmstadt, which has helped the city gain international prominence.
