Students can live up to six semesters in our residential communities. During this time, students can become more involved in university life, develop friendships, participate in cultural activities and improve their language skills, if needed.

One of the key concepts of the residential communities is the development of social skills. Our competent staff, at the housing office, carefully selects roommates to promote a better mix of undergraduate and graduate students and also to encourage cultural integration, which leads to the internationalization of the university.

The rent includes all utilities.

Students should only have to focus on their studies so let the Studierendenwerk take care of the rest.

We try to meet individual needs by offering various types of accommodations. Students can directly apply for a desired room type.

Exchange students

Each semester, the Studierendenwerk allots around 100 rooms for exchange students to the International. In this way, additional accommodation is available for the exchange students.
