PRIVATE HOUSING

Accommodation adverts can be found on the notice boards in the atrium of the main university building (“Lichthof”), as well as in cafeterias, libraries or institutes. Most adverts offer “WG rooms” (flatshares). WG is short for “Wohngemeinschaft” and describes an arrangement where several people live in the same flat and split the costs for shared facilities such as kitchen and bathroom.

Prices vary considerably depending on the location and the size of the flat. Usually, flatshares are a little more expensive than similar rooms in halls of residence.

Apart from flatshares, furnished or part furnished rooms are available – usually for a fixed period (“Zwischenmiete”).

On Wednesdays and Saturdays, daily newspapers such as Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung or Neue Presse publish accommodation adverts. You can place your own ad for a fee.
