With the beginning of the new semester, there will be many new students coming to Saarbrücken, from Germany and all over the world. Students that did not get a place in one of the dormitories of Studentenwerk, have other options to find a flat or a room in Saarbrücken:
1. Private dormitories, which are not part of the Studentenwerk im Saarland e.V.
There are several private dormitories in Saarbrücken, which are not run by the Studentenwerk. These dormitories mostly offer furnished rooms, single or double apartments. To get a place in these dormitories, you need to apply directly with their administration:
The Carl Duisberg Haus: www.sib-saarbruecken.de/wohnen
Evangelische Studierendengemeinde: www.waldhausweg7.de
Verein Internationales Studierendenwerk „Cusanus-Haus Saarbrücken“ e.V: www.cusanustreff.de
Saarland Bauträger Immobiliengruppe: www.studentenwohnungen-saarbruecken.de
Gesellschaft für Hausverwaltung mbH: www.gfhdudweiler.de
2. Searching a room on the private market
The private market also offers various types of furnished and non-furnished accommodation in Saarbrücken. In addition to single apartments and larger apartments, you can also find so-called “WGs” (Wohngemeinschaften). These are shared apartments, in which each student has a bedroom and shares kitchen and bathroom with others.
These offers are usually posted online, in the local newspapers and on the blackboards of the universities.
Additionally, the Studentenwerk offers a virtual blackboard where you can also find offers for WGs and private accommodation. Students can also post their ‘housing wanted ad’ here: www.studentenwerk-saarland.de/de/Services/Kommunikation/Pinwand
