Housing in Bonn
As in many other university towns in Germany, affordable rooms for students are on high demand. Therefore you should look for accommodation as soon as possible, if possible even before you have received a confirmation for your ERASMUS place in Bonn.
Please note: You should not arrive in Bonn without having a room or at least having organised a place to stay for the time you are looking for a room.
The International Office of the University of Bonn itself cannot arrange accommodation for you but will support you with information and advice.
Student dormitory of the Studierendenwerk
ERASMUS students may apply for a room or appartment in one of the student dormitories of the "Studentenwerk". The rent is between 196,56 € and 560 € per month, depending on size and location.
Please be aware that some dormitories of the Studierendewerk, especially the cheaper ones, are older and rooms are furnished quite functional.
In case you want a higher standard, please also have a look at private dormitories.
Please read our info sheet "How to apply for a room in the dormitories" and the "Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to dormitories of the Studierendenwerk" carefully!
Due to high demand, a room in a student dormitory is not guaranteed. Therefore it is highly recommended to take alternative housing possibilities into consideration and to look for them at the same time.
