International doctoral candidates

As an international doctoral candidate (i.e. PhD research student) you can look into the following accommodation options:

  • University guest houses: Subject to availability, you may be able to be accommodated in one of Saarland University's guest houses. For information on future availability, please contact the guest house administrator. Please note that the booking of a room in the guest house can only be finalize by your inviting faculty or professor.
  • Private rental market: If you are planning to spend a longer period of time in Saarbrücken, we recommend looking for a room on the private housing market.
