Accommodation

To ensure that our students feel comfortable during their stay around Halle, not only excellent study conditions are important, but also comfortable accommodation. We can assist you in finding a suitable room or apartment.

Most local students live either in a dormitory of Studentenwerk Halle, in a shared flat with other students or in an own appartment.

Student Administration

One of the cheapest and most popular offers for our international students looking for a room can be found through “Studentenwerk Halle” (Student Administration), which has more than 10 dormitories in Halle. There, the “Wohnheimtutoren” (resident assistants) look after the welfare of international students. In addition, “Studentenwerk Halle” offers private accommodation for those interested.

Student dormitory

The Student Administration Halle offers studio apprtments for one or two persons or single rooms in shared flats. The dormitories are spread all over the city of Halle. All rooms are furnished and offer fast internet connection. The monthly rent is about 195 Euros and covers all additional charges.

The application deadlines are:

for exchange students (for example ERASMUS-students):

  • for winter term: June 30
  • for summer term: January 15

for degree-seeking students:

  • for winter term: August 31
  • for summer term: February 28

The Student Administration will allocate the rooms in the dormitories in August and in February and will contact you via email.

We highly recommend that you fill in the application for a room in one of the dormitories right after the application form for your study in Halle. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that every international student gets a room in the dormitory.

Resident Assistants

In the dormitories run by the Student Administration (Studentenwerk Halle) there are resident assistants (international students who also live in the dormitories). Their task is to help international fellow students to quickly get accommodated and feel at home.

Finding private housing with the Student Administration

If you do not want to live in the dormitory or did not get a room there, you can get help from the Student Administration finding accomodation from a private housing company.


Private housing

Bulletin Board of MLU

The International Office also has a Bulletin Board. There German students going abroad are looking for students who rent their rooms temporarily during their study stay abroad.

Students who do not wish to utilize these services and would prefer to search for a room or apartment on the private market, shall find the website "Zu Hause in Halle" (At Home in Halle) useful in their search. On this online platform you can search the offers from the Halle Student Administration as well as from private housing companies.
