Accomodation

Reserve a dormitory room

Rather than being operated by the universities, the student dormitories in Berlin are organised by Studierendenwerk Berlin (the student services organisation for Berlin). In case you would like us to apply for a dormitory place on your behalf please make the accordant choice during your application on Mobility Online. Please note that we have a limited contingent for our dormitory places and that it cannot be guaranteed that all applicants also receive a room. However, in case your application for a room should be unsuccessful, we will notify you around 2 1/2 months before the Welcome Meeting so you will still have enough time to find accommodation on the regular housing market.

Please note that the allocation of rooms is random and it is not possible for us to take special preferences into account. e.g. with regards to the location of the dormitory or the type of apartment.

Currently we have rental agreements with the following dormitories:

Victor Jara Studierendenwohnheim

- More than 95 % or our Exchange students have successfully been allocated a room will be accommodated in this dormitory -

Address of the dormitory:

Oberfeldstraße 111-132
12683 Berlin (Biesdorf)

This dormitory is located around 15-20 min. by public transport/bicycle from our Treskowallee Campus (Business Faculty) and around 35-40 minutes from our Wilhelminenhof Campus (all other faculties).

Rent is around 275-315 EUR and a one-off deposit of 1 1/2 times the monthly rent needs to be paid (by credit card or bank transfer) alongside the first month's rent upon arrival and will be refunded after moving out. The minimum rental period is 6 months. In any case always the entire monthly rent needs to be paid even if you are arriving (or leaving) anytime during the month.

You can find more information regarding this dormitory here. However please note that the fully furnished "Apartment for one person" is the only option available to our exchange students and that it is not possible to apply directly to the dormitory but only during the application process on the Mobility Online platform.
