How can students find an accommodation in Hamburg?

It is not easy to find a suitable and affordable accommodation in Hamburg before the semester starts. We therefore recommend that you inform yourself about accommodation before you receive your admission.

It is not only the Studierendenwerk Hamburg that offers various accommodation options. The non-profit foundation Haus-Bauhütte also offers student accommodations. HCU students are given special consideration due to the foundation regulation.

Accommodation of the Studierendenwerk Hamburg

The Studierndenwerk Hamburg offer German and international students housing with affordable all-inclusive rent prices at our 26 residence halls, which can cater to 4.400 people. There are many different residential options, ranging from rooms in shared accommodation, to studio and 1-bedroom apartments. Residents share a kitchen, recreation room and bathroom facilities.

Questions relating to housing and residence will be answered in the Counselling Centre Accommodation of the Studierendenwerk Hamburg.
