Attached to your info-package that you will receive after our deadline you may find a document which will provide you assistance in finding a room in Emden (please see the landlords’ contact list (filename: “Wohnung”)). Listed are a few apartments/rooms that are regularly rented to international students as well as the contact details of the respective landlord, whom you can feel free to contact in order to ask if there is a housing vacancy available. Due to previous experiences we ask you to keep housing opportunities in mind as early as possible!


Residence halls in Emden are not managed by the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer, but by an independent organization, the Studentenwerk. Therefore the International Office is not in a position to guarantee an accommodation in such dorms.
