Accomodation & Student Life
- Accommodation in Giessen
The “Residenz Hotel” is a middle-sized, familiar, local hotel neither far away from the city center, nor from the university. Supermarkets and bus stops as well as ATM’s are located in the same street. Within the program, participants will stay in shared twin or three-bed rooms. Every room is equipped with its own bathroom. Additionally, every room will have a small kitchen unit.
Accommodation is provided from July 17th - August 14th 2021
Please note: Air condition is not available in the hotel, which means it can get quite warm in the rooms. Instead, we do provide a fan for each room. We also take consideration for food intolerances, but we cannot guarantee that all food items in the hotel will be edible for everyone.
