Generally there are two types of accommodation in Siegen:
In general we advise to apply for housing via Studierendenwerk Siegen as early as possible.
They offer accommodation at a cheap all-inclusive rent in single rooms or shared flats close to the university and with good traffic connections, as well as Handicap accessible and Family-friendly accomodation, in different dorms:
- Glückaufstraße (GA) & Adolf-Reichwein-Straße (AR) offer furnished rooms in shared flats, close to Main Adolf-Reichwein-Campus, Hölderlin-Campus and Paul-Bonatz-Campus
- Engsbachstraße & Tiergarten offer furnished single rooms on a floor or as a Doublette, in quiet locations with good traffic connections to the city centre
- Hubertusweg offers both furnished single rooms and rooms in shared flats, close to Emmy-Noether-Campus and the city center
Most dorms also feature a Party room and a Barbecue Hut, where you can get in touch with your fellow students!
Flats and flat share
If you want to organise a flat or flat sharing on your own, you should do that early enough before you arrive in Siegen. Local students usually search flats and rooms on www.wg-gesucht.de and www.studentisches-wohnen-in-siegen.de (in German).
Normally you have to pay three monthly rents as a deposit for private flat rental, but you will get it back after leaving your flat again without damages.
If you signed up for the Krönchen Exchange programme: Please note that your Buddy can help you find a flat by giving you tips, but he or she is not obligated to organise a flat for you! You should do that on your own in advance.
