Accommodation Service

The Accommodation Service is a service of our University designed to help students and assistants in their search for a place to stay. The Service cannot guarantee full success at all times, but wants to provide free one-to-one advice and guidance through practical directions on opportunities and the appropriate channels.

The Accommodation Service can assist you in several ways:

  • It runs a database with regularly updated vacancy adverts
  • It ensures a timely update (changes, deletions) of all information recorded in the database
  • It provides language assistance whenever applicants encounter difficulties in their contacts with letting agents or landlords
  • It provides basic information on tenancy laws and general guidelines on housing, procedures, etc. (
