Cost of living

Munich is a very attractive city with a high standard of living and a relative abundance of job opportunities. For these reasons, many people are drawn to come and live in the Bavarian capital. The other side of the coin are the high living costs. You should reckon with needing about €650 - €700 per month, of which accommodation costs consume a large chunk.

An additional €42 per semester is needed for the student union fees, which the Munich Student Union uses to finance its diverse services. University tuition fees of up to €500 per semester are also to be taken into consideration, as are university administration fees (€50 per semester).
