Housing Accommodation

If you are going to live in Munich it is necessary that you have a place to live! Munich has a variety of housing options available, including housing available only for students, at reduced rates. It is a good idea to look at your options before making a selection.

Many students in Munich choose to utilize a roommate-housing environment. This reduces the rent amount greatly, and also helps you feel acquainted with someone when you’re in a city quite possibly far from home. Roommates share all of the bills equally and can build lasting friendships at the same time.

You can choose to rent an apartment or other housing unit on your own if you wish. Do keep in mind that sometimes it is hard to find housing on your own in Germany. If you do manage to find an apartment, the rental costs average €300 to €600 per month. Don’t forget to add in other necessary expenses to this figure as well, including utilities, telephone, food, etc.

On-site housing is available at many different Munich institutions, and for most students, this is always the best and most affordable option. Not only are you within close proximity of all of your classes, the rates for living are much cheaper, too. And, you can surround yourself with other students attending the university and make friends and help each other as you go along.

Long-term hotels are also an option for housing in Munich. If you find it difficult to obtain housing upon arrival in the city this may be an option for you to look into. Long-term hotels offer studio apartments, which make it feel like home. They’re much more accommodating than a regular hotel room, with kitchenettes and living/sleeping areas available. Now, keep in mind the costs of these hotels are usually a considerable amount more than a regular rent amount, although that rate includes utilities, Internet, phone, etc. The best things about these hotels are that they offer everything that you need in just one package. There is no worrying about paying separate bills. One payment covers it all and you are ready to move on.

It is a good idea to start looking at the available housing options before you leave your home country. As we have already mentioned, it can be difficult to obtain housing and you do not want to arrive with nowhere to live. You will also want to compare the various options that are available to you. With the Internet available this is something that you will find easy to do. It takes just a short amount of time and can provide you with so much invaluable information that will secure your housing while in Munich.

Do not take any chances when it comes to your place to live! Do not be afraid to make phone calls to find your housing as well. Keep in mind that when you get housing you can always switch to something else if it comes along for you later on.
