Step 3 - Accommodation & Living Costs

Most of the housing managed by the University and private owners are shared apartments. Students have individual rooms but share common areas such as the kitchen, living room, and sanitary installations (shower and toilets). Usually, each bedroom is equipped with a sink, bed, mattress, chair, table, cupboard, and shelf space. The tenants must buy their bedding and cutlery themselves. Most shared apartments have between four and ten tenants.

Studios generally have one living room, including a kitchen area and a shower. Apartments have up to four rooms.
