Accommodation in a Student Hall of Residence / Private Accommodation
Accomodation in a hall of residence
You can apply for a room in one of our halls of residence by following a link you will get from us after your online registration and once you have been nominated by your home institution.
Please do NOT use the online application form for German students supplied by Student Services. Use of the latter form will only cause confusion. Only when you apply both for a place at JLU and for accommodation on our online application portal you have guaranteed accommodation.
Rent (including utilities, internet access, and linen):
- Part 2
- Part 2
Private rooms to let / Flat exchange
Below you can find a list of private rooms to let (often from outgoing students for incoming students). Please note that we cannot verify offers. We are neither responsible for the availability of the rooms nor the consequences of renting a room. Please contact the landlord directly for details.
- Part 4
Further options for finding private apartments and rooms are the local papers:
The Classifieds appear in the Friday edition of the Giessen dailies ("Allgemeine" and "Anzeiger"), and there are corresponding listings in "Maz" on Wednesdays and the "Express" every Thursday. In almost all of the main hallways, cafeterias, and restaurants of the University, you will find informal postings on the walls advertising rooms, apartments, and shared apartments to rent.
Further information on accommodation that may prove of value to you can be found at www.casaswap.com.
Temporary (youth hostel) lodgings are available – especially useful if you have just arrived in Giessen and are room-hunting:
