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.
