ACCOMMODATION FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Accommodation for International students

When talking about Germany there is lot many options available but the foremost choice which you are required to make is between the accommodations in Germany with other roommates or renting a private rent residence for only yourself.

Don’t even rely on the German universities because they are no far responsible for your accommodation. It’s you who must accommodate yourself with the most relevant search.

Every city has a student hall for residence known as “Studentwerk” (like that of student service organizations). The average cost of Studentwerk is around 240 euros/month which is much of affordable kind when it comes to student accommodation in Germany, where each and every penny in your pocket matters a lot.

You might get surprised to know that there are 181,000 applications for accommodation which are really at a very high demand. A piece of advice for you to safe yourself from the accommodations hectic is that you must apply as early as possible.

Just for your knowledge, the applications are selected online via the local administration website of Studentwerk.

As mentioned earlier, you will find a range of housing in Germany especially through the network of Studentwerk. The only kind of accommodation you must be glad with is a room, a well-furnished communal kitchen, living space and bathroom of course!

On the contrary, if you wish more of a private apartment, there are two kinds of alternative for you:

  • Single private residence
  • Double private residence

Make one thing very clear, that if you are looking for this kind of housing in Germany then get ready to spend slightly higher price for accommodating only yourself!

The prices of a residence also vary on the degree of how well it is furnished so if your budget is really tight, you can go for a house with very basic level of furnishing comprising of: a bed, wardrobe, a book shelf and a desk for you to study on. If you still find it costlier then you can also go for an unfurnished apartment for an affordable yet cheaper cost.

The next option is you can reside in a private rent accommodation in Germany which is offered by a landlord or might be a real estate broker. In case if you select this option, the average cost of living in Germany is not much but yes, slightly above the bar when it comes cost of living in Germany for international students i.e. 210-360 euros. But then still the cost depends on how furnished home you are offered with.

Also if you wish to help yourself by saving cost of accommodation, the best thing is to share an apartment with a roommate like that in flat share. So you won’t have to spend any extraordinary cost for accommodation.

Apartments in Berlin

Berlin, the capital of Germany, indeed a prodigious city of Germany! So scrounging for a right accommodation doesn’t seem to be a tough task, correct?

Well, lamentably you are mistaken!

The benefit of living in berlin is indeed the quality of well-furnished apartments, it serves you with. But if look at the figure of last certain years, the prices are really skyrocketed.

Berlin has traveled from a very cheap European capital to one of the most costly places in Germany to live. But still, if we compare it with the capital of other European nations, Berlin is still way much affordable.

After berlin was immensely destructed after the war, it was split up into two half namely the east and the west. During the rundown, the houses of Berlin were very much neglected.

The relief factor is that these rundown homes are now renovated very nicely with new floors and furnished altogether. Predominantly, those of the Alt-Bauwohnungen regions, render spacious rooms with high ceilings and beautiful floors which is undeniably a feel good factor!

Also if you are more of a “standardized place person” then you can accommodate yourself in the new and ongoing projects where you will not only see a modern living space but will get good home vibes, which will further save you from the “home sick” feeling.

So what you are waiting for? Open you smartphones, tabs and palmtops and initiate the online search. As you are aware of what to find and where, it’s time for you to accommodate yourself!
