Government funded housing (social housing) is a low-cost option. In order to lease one, you need a "§ 5-Schein" certificate, which you can obtain upon request from the district office, for a charge, if your annual income is less than certain income limits.Students with a residence permit according to § 16 Aufenthaltsgesetz (residence law) are not entitled to receive a certificate of housing entitlement. The district office can provide further information on this.
