Finding accommodation at the beginning of your studies is a real challenge. Here are some options: accommodation managed by Student Services Erlangen-Nürnberg, social housing services at the town hall, housing co-operatives and non-profit housing associations, ads in the local newspapers and online portals.
Student Services Erlangen-Nürnberg allocate places in student accommodation directly. Places in the student halls operated by Student Services Erlangen-Nürnberg are allocated directly by the service; for student halls which are not operated by Student Services Erlangen-Nürnberg, you will need to apply directly. A large number of student rooms shortly available is offered at the end of each semester on the black boards in the university buildings. Recently, these have increasingly been replaced by virtual notice boards.
