In Emden, the Studentenwerk Oldenburg offers housing for students in four halls of residence. The halls of residence run by the Studentenwerk are a good choice for both shorter and long term accommodation. Situated at comfortable distances from the University of Applied Sciences, the halls and houses provide single rooms, either in shared flats, in double apartments or in single apartments. The single and double apartments have their own kitchen / kitchenette and bathroom, whereas in the shared flats, you find shared kitchens and bathrooms.
Depending on the hall of residence, you can rent furnished or unfurnished rooms, some being also partly furnished with a book shelf and a cupboard. Even if the room is fully furnished, students must bring their own bedding (i.e. pillows, duvets and linen) as well as towels, cutlery and crockery. There are no meals provided in the halls of residence, but students may of course use the restaurant and cafeteria at the University of Applied Sciences.
The rents in the halls of residence range between € 110 and about € 256, not including utilities. Charges for utilities (such as water, heating, electricity etc.) range between 43 and 65 €, depending on the hall of residence. Further costs might arise from internet or telephone connections which are provided in all rooms. When applying for a room, please note that the usual waiting lists may be longer at the beginning of the winter term in september.
Furthermore, the Studentenwerk offers an online private accommodation database for international students. There, you can look for room offers published by private landlords and get in touch with them directly.
Please note: If you want to study in Emden as a so-called free mover, please make sure to arrange for accommodation before you arrive in Emden, if possible 3 to 6 months prior to the beginning of your stay! Otherwise it may be difficult to find accommodation.
