Living at the Studentenwerk Göttingen is diverse and as varied as the buildings are, are also the forms of housing. There are reasonably priced single rooms in hallway or housing communities, single and double flats as well as group and family flats.
From historic half-timbered houses in the city centre to dormitories of the 60s and 70s, to modern apartment complexes near the university, the Studentenwerk offers students around 4,400 inexpensive rooms, flats and apartments.
We rely on the self-responsibility of the students: student self-governments are responsible for the internal affairs, but also for leisure activities in many dormitories.

Tips on applying
The demand for our dormitories is high, especially before the semester starts in the months of March and August/September. We, therefore, recommend you apply for a dorm room as soon as you consider Göttingen as a place of study. Flexibility in terms of rental start increases your chances of getting a dorm room. Admission or enrolment is not yet required for the online application for a dorm room!
Search on the private housing market
For your search on the private housing market, you should also plan enough lead time. Note: Landlords like to get to know students personally. Therefore, you should plan a stay in Göttingen for your room search. You can find further information about the room search on the private housing market here.
