    Tipps for room hunting

    In contrast to some other countries, students in Germany do not receive accommodation automatically from the university. Students must therefore rely on themselves and find their own lodging.

    There are basically two kinds of accommodation: Accommodation of the „Studentenwerk“ or private rooms/student halls. Rooms of „Studentenwerk“ are usually furnished (bed, closet, table, and shelves). Bedding, linens and towels (and sometimes dishes) must be brought by the student. Private rooms are in most cases unfurnished.

    As it is not easy to find accommodation in German university towns, we try to provide you with the most important information in this reference guide.
    Please keep in mind: You are not alone hunting for a room! Hundreds of other students (German and international) are searching for accommodation. So be prepared to look for housing further away than 5 minutes from your department building. The more flexible you are, the better chances are of you finding something.

    You can also look for accommodation in the towns nearby such as Gerbrunn,  Veitshöchheim, Zell, Höchberg, Randeracker etc. Your semester ticket is also valid in the sourrounding of Wuerzburg. Your semster ticket will be valid also in Ochsenfurt, Kitzingen or Karlstadt that are small towns with low rents but you will need at least 15-20 minutes to reach Würzburg Main Station.

     

    Student Services/Studentenwerk Würzburg

    In Germany, student dormitories are not managed by the universities themselves, but by self-contained organizations named Studentenwerk. For more information and application forms, please see the Studentenwerk-website for Würzburg:

    http://www.studentenwerk-wuerzburg.de/en.html

    There you'll also find an overview of the dormitories as well as an move-in-guide.

    http://www.studentenwerk-wuerzburg.de/en/wohnen/move-in-guide.html

    You should be quick to reserve your space in a dormitory, as there may be shortages at times.

    Living in a shared flat (WG) or flat on you own

    Private shared flats (called Wohngemeinschaften in German, or just WG) are probably the most popular form of accommodation. Several students look for a flat together and each has their own room, while sharing kitchen and bathroom. The occupants also share the rent.

    If you go hunting for a WG or flat on your one, you can find rooms on offer at:
