Bar

The KänGuruh is our dormitory bar and therefore also your party location right outside your front door. We (usually) open for you every Thursday at 21 o’clock. You want to have a party, catch up with friends over a beer, meet new people or just forget the stress of university life? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Access to the bar has been prohibited again by the Studierendenwerk! We hope to resume the bar rentals every weekend in May. More information below.

  • Dance floor
  • Kicker & Darts
  • 2 pinball machines (Taxi & Indiana Jones)
  • roofed smoking area just outside the door
  • separate toilet rooms
  • nice people, lots of good humour and much more

Events

Bar evening

Every Thursday at 21 o’clock Sometime soon, our doors will open again to help the thirsty residents to beer, cocktails and other drinks. To make sure you can still pay your tuition fees next semester, we guarantee low prices. The bar is run by your fellow residents from the Käng-AG on a voluntary basis, but any resident can stand behind the bar! If you’d like to take over the bar yourself on a Thursday, you are welcome to sign up on the list in the bar or simply write us . Then you can organise a bar evening according to your wishes and, of course, drink freely! We are happy to support you as much as you like, so you won’t be alone behind the bar all of a sudden.

Bar rental


— Currently it is NOT POSSIBLE to use the bar! —

The StW finally explained us, why they made us close the bar at the end of February.
Apparently, in the last 30-35 years, nobody adjusted the city plans of the dormitory, which is why the rooms, we used as a bar in the last 30 years, are noted in the city’s archives as “storage rooms”. Therefore, any use besides storing stuff, is illegal. To change that entry, the StW has to get a fire inspection, since this is especially a matter of fire safety and emergency exits.
So basically, currently, we turn down every enquiry for bar rentals.

We have decided to allow bar hire every weekend, while there is no “regular” bar evening! You can use all the advantages of the bar – our grandiose party cellar – for private parties again. Contact us so we can arrange a date. Bar rentals are generally possible on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. However, with regard to the neighbouring dormitory residents, the bar won’t be rented out more than once per weekend. These are the most important points:

  • IMPORTANT ADDITION DUE TO CURRENT SITUATION: According to the reglementations the beginning of the year events have to be held under 2G+ conditions (= only negatively tested participants, who are in addition vaccinated or recovered from an covid-infection) with atmost 10 guests, a number which might be increased as permitted by the latest reglementations of the 28th February.
  • Costs: 60€ rent + 100€ deposit
  • The rent includes:
    • a party cellar all by yourselves
    • all the equipment of the bar
    • Spotify premium access to have the best music playing over the sound system.
  • Drinks are not included, but you can buy them at cost price directly from the bar stock (so you don’t have to lug them around 😉 )
  • The bar is usually handed over in the evening at around 5 p.m. and should be return by 8 p.m the following day (exceptions can be agreed upon).
  • The facilities must be left properly cleaned (wet wiped!).
  • Here you can see, which week-ends are still free
  • Here you’ll find the standard rent contract

Sunday Bar

The bar opens on Sundays, too! There’s no wild party like on Thursdays, but you can enjoy homemade crepes in a cozy atmosphere. There’s also free coffee and tea. In winter you can even get some delicious mulled wine (definitely cheaper than at any Christmas market). From time to time, you can join the traditional watchalong of “Sendung mit der Maus”.

Game Night

If you’re not the party type, that’s no problem. Just come to the games night instead. It takes place every Monday from 8:30 pm at the bar. There is a huge selection of board games that you can try out with other game enthusiasts. Of course, new games are always being added so that it doesn’t get boring.
