Please note: We only have a very limited number of rooms available. At the moment, all accommodation for the Fall semester of academic year 2019-2020 is fully booked. Therefore, your name will be placed on our waiting list. You will only be contacted in case a room becomes available. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please check our website for alternative options for housing.
As an exchange student, before you apply for accommodation, please make sure you have been nominated by your home university AND you have completed your application in our mobility database Moveon.
