Housing services

Before you start studying, it is advised to look for a place to stay. If you decide to live in Eberswalde, you can choose to either stay in student dormitories or shared accommodation in apartments. You can also live in Berlin, but finding a place in the capital might be rather difficult, therefore we advise you to arrive at least 2 weeks before study start.

Library services

The library at HNE Eberswalde is a service facility for media and information, which is generally accessible to the public, and welcomes both external students and other interested visitors. We purchase literature required by students, researchers and lecturers and make this media collection accessible. 

ICT services

The IT service centre operates a VPN server (Virtual Private Network) called vpn.hnee.de. You need to identify yourself with your login name and password. In order to connect to this VPN server you need to setup a VPN connection on top of your existing network connection (e.g. a local WiFi connection) to the Internet.
