Student Residence Halls
Program participants live with German and international students in coeducational university residence halls. Located throughout the city, the halls provide students with single rooms that remain available to them during vacation periods and until the end of the academic year. The rooms are modern and the common kitchens are well equipped and clean. Students must live in university housing; independently arranged housing is not permitted.
Students receive a board stipend each month to cover their meal costs. Though students cite the numerous restaurants in Hamburg as an inexpensive alternative to cooking, many students enjoy preparing their meals in shared kitchen facilities in their residence halls. Centrally located student cafeterias also provide reasonably priced meal options.
Cell phones are provided for students, but students must prepay for their calls. Landlines are not provided in residence halls, but can be installed. Students are responsible for all associated charges.
