What our students typically do is find accommodation with a recommended dormitory or rental agency for their first semester and then rent an apartment with their schoolmates for the remaining time of their studies. The cost of rent varies throughout the city and also depends on how many flatmates you have and your preferred living standards. If you’re not sure which option is the best for you, the staff in our Student Services Center will be happy to help you out and perhaps connect you with fellow students in search of housing.
