Recently, a facebook website has been created specifically for the search for accommodation in Göttingen. There you can find room offers or put up a "Room wanted" note:
Facebook flat search Göttingen

Rooms are also advertised on the notice board located close to the Café Central in the main lecture hall building (ZHG). There are also two local newspapers which advertise rooms for rent once a week - the Göttinger Tageblatt (every Saturday and the Blick (every Wednesday)

Please start to search for an accommodation as early as possible and do not underestimate the difficulties in finding a room!

In Germany most accommodation which is offered on the private housing market is rented out unfurnished. For this reason, please always double check if furniture is included or take into account that you need to buy some furniture.
