Accommodation

The city of Düsseldorf and its suburbs offer many nice places to live, but the housing situation is tight. When preparing for your stay in Düsseldorf, make sure to look for appropriate accommodation as soon as possible, ideally already from your home town or country. Especially, when coming from abroad it might be easier to look for short term accommodation first (3 months).

In order to simplify your search for a permanent apartment, it might be possible to get an apartment at university housing for the first 3 months. Unfortunately, the university housing situation is very tight and we can't guarantee for it. Please contact us in time of your arrival and we will be happy to assist you with finding an accommodation.

The following links list various platforms for hostels, furnished and unfurnished apartments as well as offers for shared apartments. In shared apartments you usually have your own room, but the kitchen and bathroom are used jointly.

In addition, you will also find information on the different residential districts in Düsseldorf and their location in respect to the university. In order to assist your flat hunt we have put together a glossary for common German phrases in apartment advertisements.
