Accommodations in Berlin


Rooms in Student Dorms

Many of our students live in student dormitories. The "Studentenwerk" (Student Services Berlin) lets flats in its dorms.

The monthly rent for a bedsit runs between 130-240 euros. A deposit of roughly 200 euros must also be paid, which is returned to you when you move out, provided you leave the flat in an orderly condition.

Because rent is directly booked from your bank account, we kindly ask you to immediately open a bank account upon arriving in Berlin.

Please understand that the HTW cannot provide any information about rooms let by Student Services Berlin.

Information on the student dorms run by Students Services Berlin can be found at their website:
