Student Housing

Accommodation in Stuttgart can be obtained in different ways:

University Accommodation

The campuses of the University of Stuttgart are provided by the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart with rooms, especially for new foreign students (between 80 and 90 % of the international master students live there), which lay close to the other university's facilities.

Single furnished rooms in university housing with kitchen and washroom facilities are available from about EUR 260 to EUR 300 per month (including utilities). Meals are not included, bed linen and dishes are not provided. A room can be rented from the first day of each month. Moving in on a weekend is impossible.
These rooms are offered on a "FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED" basis to students. In order to reserve a room, a deposit (EUR 700) must be made.
You can take a look at these rooms in Studierendenwerk Stuttgart. There you will also find the application forms.

Youth Hostels are an option if you arrive out of office hours or at a time when you cannot move into your residences (as mentioned above).
