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.
