It’s not easy

We want to be honest: Like in most university cities it is not easy to find an accommodation in Erlangen, especially not in a convenient location. The university accommodation service can provide assistance here. Nonetheless it can still be very difficult to find a place to stay. For international students we have a certain amount of accommodation in public or private housing. The number of rooms available in these areas, however, is limited.

Dedicated accommodation for international students

International students need to apply to accommodation service of the university and not directly. Students should contact the accommodation service after they have been admitted to MAOT.

  • Dormitories of the “Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg”, a public institution that provides accommodations for students. Important: MAOT students should only use the online application form if specifically asked to do so by the universitiy’s International Office. MAOT students can only be allocated an apartment here if they have been recommended by the International Office.
  • The international dormitory in the Wichernstrasse run by the “Internationaler Bund” (an association for the support of foreigners in Germany). Many MAOT students live here. As with the ‘Studentenwerk’ MAOT students should not apply here directly, instead available places are allocated by the university’s International Iffice of the University. Students are asked to direct any enquiries and communications concerning these dormitories to the International office.
