Welcome to the website of von Detten-Kolleg - a students’ dormitory in Münster, Westphalia.

Von Detten-Kolleg was built by the foundation of the catholic family von Detten (founded in 1599) and opened in winter term 1963/64.

Initially the foundation’s purpose was to support the family’s descendants’ education.

To do so, first the members of the family received scholarships, then a dormitory for pupils was built. Later the foundation decided to built a students’ dormitory to help overcoming housing shortage among students.


We are no anonymous appartment house but place value on community and solidarity among residents. Students who do so as well are welcome!


Von Detten-Kolleg is located in Horstmarer Landweg, close to the university’s sports grounds, between FH Münster (university of applied science) and Leonardo Campus. A bakery and a copy shop are just around the corner, York Center (shopping centre) is 1 km away and so is Coesfelder Kreuz.

Coming from the main station you can take either bus no. 4 or no. 13 and get off “Corrensstraße”. Coming from the city centre you take bus no. 13. After 21.00 pm take N85 towards Nienberge.





Von Detten-Kolleg offers 85 rooms (à 11qm) for students. The rooms are ready-furnished. Furthermore there are a couple of common rooms and a garden, which offer the possibility of sports and recreation.
