Pfarrer Volker Jastrzembski, Ephorus | Head of the Konvikt

Our house

The Theologische Konvikt is open to students of all faculties and faiths. It is based on a Christian view of humanity. This is expressed in our core values: acceptance, kindness, patience, inclusion, sustainability, charity and solidarity.

It is important to us to create structures that are sensitive to discrimination and to make the Konvikt a place where queer people and BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) as well as other marginalized groups feel comfortable. To this end, we have formed an awareness team that supports, advises and trains the residents.

Our community is  based on our rules of coexistence. As a community, we reject all forms of violence, border violations and discrimination, such as ableism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, queerophobia, racism, sexism and similar attitudes.

The Theological Convict expects residents to be willing to live in community, to be particularly committed to the house and to be open to theological issues and ecumenical encounters.

The diverse house life is organized in the association “Gemeinschaft des Theologischen Konvikts Berlin e.V.”. Membership of the association is therefore a prerequisite for the conclusion of a tenancy agreement.

Your application

Applications are only possible via our application form. An application includes:

  1. The most important document is the letter of motivation. This is initially read by the selection committee without the other documents and should therefore stand alone. You are welcome to anonymize it if you wish. You should answer the following questions in it: Why do you want to join the Konvikt? What do you want to bring to the Konvikt? You are welcome to add information about social commitment, cultural interests, etc. or tell us what else we need to consider in your application.
  2. Curriculum vitae in tabular form
  3. Certificate of enrollment (if already available)
  4. Certificate that you do not owe any rent (if you have already been renting)
  5. Proof of monthly income (e.g. BAFÖG or scholarship certificate; parental guarantee, if available)
