Living in Bonn

Student Accommodation

As in all University cities, affordable accommodation is in high demand, especially at the start of each semester. As a participant of the Master program, ZEI can assist you to apply for a room in a student dormitory run by Studierendenwerk Bonn. Rooms must be rented for a minimum of 3 months. All rooms are single rooms. Monthly rates vary from €250,00 to €500,00 depending on quality, size of the room, age and location of the dorm. The rent covers usage of water, heating, and electric power. Access to cable TV and/or to the internet (via LAN) is usually included as well. 

Unfortunately, due to high demand, we can not guarantee that all students who apply will be successful.

The Master office can also provide you with information to help you look for a room in a shared flat (very common among students in Germany) on the private market.
