Student Housing

Here you find information about the different options of accomodation

Accommodation in Stuttgart can be obtained in different ways.

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. Meals are not included in the rent fee and dishes are not provided. A room is rented from the first day of each month. Moving in on a weekend or a public holiday 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.

appears on Thursday afternoons, but can also be obtained at newspaper stands. It has the most ads.

"Stut. Zeitung"
