1. Student halls of residence - general information

Rooms in a hall of residence are especially popular with international students, since they are furnished and inexpensive. Not all residences are near the campus, but the university is easy to get to by public transport – and free, thanks to the semester travel ticket.

You can apply to the following providers for rooms in halls of residence:

2. Shared apartments - a room in a WG

Unlike in many other countries, the majority of German students live in private apartments, or so-called Wohngemeinschaften (WGs). The students rent an apartment together and occupy a room each. The kitchen and bathroom are shared and the costs for them are divided among the residents. WGs have the advantage that you get to know your flatmates quickly and well, and that your living costs are relatively cheap. The prices for WG rooms vary widely depending on their size, the location of the apartment and the level of extra costs (electricity, water, gas, etc.).

If you are interested in getting a room in a WG, remember to check whether the room is furnished.
