If you study at our University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer, you can apply for accommodation at the local residence hall before your arrive in Emden. There is one fully-furnished student dormitory, called “Steinweg 20”. 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.
Please note that move-in times are limited due to semester dates.
