Accommodation Service

The Accommodation Service is here to help und support you in all issues of accommodation to make it easier for you to find accommodation.

Please note: The University does not provide accommodation. Admission and enrolment at the University do not imply admission to student dormitories or housing of any kind.

In Göttingen (and Germany in general), it is difficult to find affordable accommodation. The housing market is very competitive, particularly at the beginning of the winter semester during the months of September, October and November. Therefore, it is advisable to start looking for accommodation as soon as possible.

Rooms in student dormitories operated by the Studentenwerk are very reasonably priced at 200€ to 300€. Rental costs for private housing are higher. Rooms in flat-shares easily cost between 300€ and 450€ (if not more), apartments are about 400€ -600€ per month, depending on the location and amenities.

Affordable accommodation for families is difficult to find.

If you would like to use the help of the Accommodation Service for finding an accommodation, please fill out our application form.

If you have any questions concerning accommodation, please contact the Accommodation Service.

Student dormitories are managed by the Studentenwerk (Student Welfare Services), an independent organisation that works closely with the University of Göttingen.

Please find here information on the availabilities and the application process.
