Your home away from home

As an international student who is coming to Mainz for one or more semesters you are at exactly the right spot here. A semester abroad is exciting but it is also connected to a huge amount of work and organisation. We would like to help you with that. We believe finding a place to stay in the foreign country is one the first and most important things to worry about. Not to worry -  we're here to help you check it off your list. 

On these pages, we inform you about everything you need to know about living with us here in Mainz during your stay. You can find general information about our dormitories with more details about rent, a lot of pictures of the rooms and information about moving in and out in our section Housing.

You can directly apply online for a room here: online application


Would you prefer to search for an apartment by yourself?

You’re welcome to do so. We would like to inform you that it’s uncommon in Germany to rent furnished apartments. International students often struggle to rent a place if they don’t speak German fluently and only want to rent for a short-term period aka one or two semesters. Also, you often need a financial guarantee letter. Moving in and flat-sharing an apartment with other students is often connected with a casting process for which you would need to be in Mainz ahead of time.

We're here for you - your team Housing International
