Our Student Accommodation Service is an important address to receive all the important information about living in Göttingen.
The Accommodation Service helps students with general information about the halls of residence belonging to the Studentenwerk (the student services organisation).
We also support your search on the private housing market. In Germany most accommodation which is offered on the private housing market is rented out unfurnished. For this reason, please always double check if furniture is included or take into account that you need to buy some furniture. As Göttingen is very much a student city and is not too big, students live in every area of the city. All areas can be accessed easily by bus and a lot of students use bikes to get from one place to another.
Rooms are also advertised on the notice boards located close to the Café Central in the multipurpose building of the University Göttingen, called "Blue Tower", (Mehrzweckgebäude der Universität Göttingen, genannt "Blauer Turm") and in the foyer of Studentenwerk. There are also two local newspapers which advertise rooms for rent once a week - the Göttinger Tageblatt (every Saturday) and the Blick (every Wednesday).
Please start to search for an accommodation as early as possible and do not underestimate the difficulties in finding a room!
