Housing services

Mannheim has a few student apartments within 10 or 20 minutes walking distance to all Mannheim University, MBS course locations, and to the city centre. The apartments are normally fully furnished, including internet access. Common facilities such as washing machines are available in the basement or in a nearby location. The rent prices for the apartments may vary between €410 and €450 per month or €255 and €290 per week (prices are subject to change without prior notice). Compared to the number of students in Mannheim, the number of student apartments are considerably less. Hence, the "first come, first serve" principle normally applies.

Library services

The library of the Chair of Business Administration, Public & Nonprofit Management is located in L5, 4 on the second floor (rooms 207/209). It holds a wide range of relevant literature and thus helps students work on their research projects. The library is primarily directed at the needs of students with a specialization in Public & Nonprofit Management.
