Improved “Zimmer frei?!” Helps Students Find Accommodation Improved “Zimmer frei?!” Helps Students Find Accommodation

It is now even easier for landlords to find students in a targeted way

The “Zimmer frei?!” (“Got a room?!”) initiative is helping to unlock the student housing market in Bonn and the wider Rhein-Sieg district. The portal has now been moved to a new platform to ensure that people offering and looking for somewhere to live can continue to rely on finding one another.


Bonn has been a popular place to come and study for a long while now. However, suitable student accommodation is in short supply. “Zimmer frei?!” wants to bring the landlords of student housing in the region and their student tenants closer together.

In particular, people who own accommodation but have never rented it out before can find students for it in a targeted way via the “Zimmer frei?!” portal. Landlords can enter the details of their properties themselves quickly and easily, with all the instructions given on the portal. If necessary, though, staff at the University of Bonn Information Desk will be on hand to help them through this process. Besides listing the available accommodation, the portal also tells students about various living arrangements that will allow them to study successfully in Bonn.

The “Zimmer frei!?” initiative was set up nearly ten years ago by a number of stakeholders from the region: Alanus University, the University of Bonn, Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, the respective student representative bodies, religious associations at the University of Bonn, Studierendenwerk Bonn, the Rhein-Sieg district and the city of Bonn, Bonn/Rhein-Sieg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and the landlords’ association Haus & Grund. The alliance encourages property owners in the region to rent accommodation to students. Find out more: zimmerfrei-bonn.de
