Housing services

Finding a payable room is one challenge for new students in Bonn, especially for international students without German language skills. The Studierendenwerk Bonn - an independent public institution - offers rooms in student's residences. Due to an increasing number of students the rooms are fully booked quite quickly! In Bonn we have sometimes a housing shortage for cheap accommodations (e.g. at start of the winter semester), therefore it is important to search as soon as possible an accommodation.

Library services

Bonn University Library – comprised of the Main Library (Hauptbibliothek) and the Branch Library for Medicine, Science and Agriculture (Abteilungsbibliothek Medizin, Naturwissenschaft und Landbauwissenschaften) - serves as the university‘s central lending library.
