Halls of residence

Click here to see the locations of the individual properties.

Up to 50% of the places at the 23 halls of residence managed by the Studierendenwerk Hamburg are available for international students. The percentage of international students studying at Hamburg universities is 10%.

You will have to expect waiting times for a place due to the huge demand for student accommodation.

Students registered at one of the Hamburg universities are entitled to a place at a hall of residence, as well as students at the Studienkolleg, the Zentralkolleg, the Conservatorium in Blankenese and at Bucerius Law School.

You can apply for a place online. 

Exchange students

Many students who study in Hamburg temporarily as part of an exchange programme such as "Erasmus" or "Socrates" can get a place in a hall of residence directly. The Studierendenwerk makes a number of rooms available to the respective universities.

For further information and application, please contact your coordinator at your home or guest university, or get in touch with the Academic Exchange Service of your Hamburg-based university. You will find the Academic Exchange Services or the contact persons from the Hamburg universities on the respective websites:
