Student accommodation

Compared to many other university cities, student accommodation in Saarbruecken is relatively affordable by German standards. Typically htw saar students find accommodation on the private rental market. Popular with students are shared student apartments (rent for a room currently range roughly between 220€ and 290€ plus utility charges) or single apartments (rent range roughly between 320€ and 450€ plus utility charges). The price range depends on size, location, standard and whether it’s furnished or unfurnished. The majority of offers on the private rental market are unfurnished, but furnished offers may also be available.

htw saar does not operate student residence halls itself and is unfortunately not a member of the “Studentenwerk im Saarland e.V.” (an association which runs the majority of the student residence halls in the city of Saarbruecken). However, there are some other external institutions which operate student residences with furnished units (apply early as these are high in demand).
