Housing Referral Service

There is always the danger of Internet fraud, so please do NOT transfer money in advance (for rent, security deposit etc). As the studentenwerk is involved in the provision of private rooms only as intermediary, we do not know, nor check the landlords personally.

Every year, our Housing Referral Service passes on the details of several hundred private rooms to students who have not been offered a space in a halls of residence. Please notice that the Studentenwerk is involved only in function of intermediary. We do not verify the landlord or the offers we make available.

If you are beginning to study in Munich in October, you should be aware that at this period a lot of new students will be looking for a place to stay. We consider you to start searching earlier. You might have the best chances to find something relatively soon between july and september.

Warning: Because of data protection it's not allowed to give the received contact details from the providers/ landlords to a third party!

Information about current housing offers in Munich, Freising or Rosenheim you can find here. In order to obtain the telephone number of a landlord, you must be in possession of a valid username, which you can get here.
