Housing Office


The Housing Office supports international students at the beginning of each winter semester (September and October) in their search for housing in Saarbrücken.

Please note: the Housing Office does not rent out rooms!
We support you in your search for accommation, but we do not offer rooms ourselves.

The Housing Office is currently closed. We will resume our service for the winter semester 2023/24, probably from September 2023.

How can the Housing Office support me?

  • we help you to find accommodation in the wider Saarbrücken area (website, tips, explanations etc.)
  • we will find you a tutor who will help you with the search (e.g. to contact landlords)
  • we receive offers from private landlords and pass them on to you
  • we help you to find short-term accommodation for the first days (e.g. in a hostel)
  • if you rent an unfurnished room, we can help you find cheap furniture

What does the Housing Office not offer?

  • we do not offer a pick-up service from airports or train stations
  • we do not organise an all-inclusive room ready for you to just move into - you have to share the workload
  • we are not responsible for the dormitories of the Studierendenwerk, we cannot secure you a room there
  • we cannot provide legal advice
  • as soon as you have found a room, our service is finished, we can not be available the whole semester
